Rick and Brian have several very good thrips management trails in place. Here are images from the regional trial at Rocky Mount with Bailey. I have also included images with Georgia 06G. I will include the images from the programs trial in just a minute.
Image 1. Bailey non-treated
Image 2. Bailey with Cruiser Maxx only
Image 3. Bailey with Cruiser Maxx followed by Orthene 21 days after planting or 14 days after emergence. I was incorrect yesterday (numerous times) but Brian sprayed 6 oz of Orthene on this trial rather than 10 oz. The higher rate was used in the “old programs” trial.
Image 4. Bailey with Thimet at 5 lbs/acre
Image 5. Georgia 06G non-treated
Image 6. Georgia 06G with Cruiser Maxx only
Image 7. Georgia 06G with Cruiser Maxx followed by Orthene at 6 oz/acre
Image 8. Georgia 06G with Thimet at 5 lbs/acre (note Thimet burn on lower leaves)
