|Title:||A Field Trial of Mating Disruption for Helicoverpa spp. in Cotton||Contributor(s):||Betts, Marissa (author) ; Gregg, Peter (author) ; Fitt, G P (author); Macquillan, M J (author)||Publication Date:||1993||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/23498||Abstract:||Helicoverpa armigera (Hubner) and Helicoverpa punctigera (Wallengren) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) are widespread throughout Australia, and are pests of field and horticultural crops. Their importance has grown, especially with the advent of resistance in H. armigera to synthetic pyrethroids (Gunning & Balfe,1990). This resistance problem, and the increasing public concern about over-use of pesticides and consequent detrimental effects on the environment, mean that alternative control methods are needed. One of the alternatives is mating disruption. This is achieved by releasing pheromone into the atmosphere in a concentration sufficient to disrupt communication between the sexes, thus preventing mating and subsequent larval infestations.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Australian Applied Entomological Research Conference, Canberra, Australia, 28th April - 1st May, 1992||Source of Publication:||Pest Control and Sustainable Agriculture: Proceedings of the Australian Applied Entomological Research Conference, p. 298-300||Publisher:||CSIRO Australia||Place of Publication:||Melboune, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||070308 Crop and Pasture Protection (Pests, Diseases and Weeds)||HERDC Category Description:||E2 Non-Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||https://trove.nla.gov.au/work/23592494
