IYC 2011 - Pest Management Science

Essential Weed Genomics Research

Now Online in Pest Management Science - don't miss these 2 new leading papers in weed research:
Together these papers represent the most substantial contribution to weed genomic information yet produced: they will act as a harbinger of a wealth of genomic information on important weeds, both those in agricultural ecosystems and invasive plant species that threaten natural ecosystems.

Table of Contents for Pest Management Science

The structure–activity relationship in herbicidal monosubstituted sulfonylureas

BACKGROUND: The herbicide sulfonylurea (SU) belongs to one of the most important class of herbicides worldwide. It is well known for its ecofriendly, extreme low toxicity towards mammals and ultralow...

Adsorption, transport and degradation of fipronil termiticide in three Hawaii soils

BACKGROUND: The behavior of the termiticide fipronil in soils was studied to assess its potential to contaminate ground and surface water. This study characterizes (1) adsorption of fipronil in three...

Pyrethroid insecticide tolerance in bean leaf beetle, Cerotoma trifurcata, in the Mississippi Delta

BACKGROUND: Pyrethroid insecticides have historically been effective for controlling bean leaf beetles in soybeans. Perceived field efficacy in the Mississippi Delta region has been lower over the...

Strong resistance to the fungicide fenhexamid entails a fitness cost in Botrytis cinerea, as shown by comparisons of isogenic strains

BACKGROUND: Fenhexamid, a sterol biosynthesis inhibitor effective against Botrytis, inhibits the 3‐ketoreductase (Erg27) involved in C‐4 demethylation. Several fenhexamid‐resistant phenotypes have...

Identifying the presence of neonicotinoidresistant peach‐potato aphid (Myzus persicae) in the peach‐growing regions of southern France and northern Spain

BACKGROUND: The neonicotinoid class of insecticides is a key component of pest management strategies used by stone fruit producers in Europe. Neonicotinoids are currently one of the most important...

Susceptibility of standard clones and European field populations of the green peach aphid, Myzus persicae, and the cotton aphid, Aphis gossypii (Hemiptera: Aphididae), to the novel anthranilic diamide insecticide cyantraniliprole

BACKGROUND: Parthenogenetic clones of the green peach aphid, Myzus persicae (Sulzer), and the cotton aphid, Aphis gossypii Glover, were tested with the anthranilic diamide insecticide...
