(2000) reported that non-fumigant nematicides can be easily and safely applied as compared to fumigants, which are most widely used such as carbofuran, aldicarb, fenamiphos, fosthiazate cadusafos, oxamyl, ethoprop and organophosphate based nematicides.
This resulted in inclusion of the following 14 OPs: azinphosmethyl, chlorpyrifos, diazinon, dichlorovos, dimethoate, malathion, methidathion, omethoate, oxydemeton methyl, phosmet, acephate, bensulide, ethoprop, and methamidophos.
Only 2 insecticides, ethoprop and phorate, are currently registered for wireworm control in Florida sugarcane.
OPs not detected included: dimethoate, disulfoton, ethoprop, fensulfothion, EPN, fenthion, malathion, merphos, methyl parathion, azinphos-methyl, phorate, demeton.
As a chemical control, other pots were sprayed with the nematicide ethoprop. At 2, 4, and 6 weeks, they checked the pots for diminished seed germination and sprouting.
propiconazole, tebuconazole, biternatol) were among the commonly used fungicides, and fenamiphos, cadusafos, terbufos, and ethoprop were the commonly used nematicides in the plantations.
[19] Rivers and groundwater systems were found to be contaminated with chlorothalonil, chlorpyrifos, terbufos and/or ethoprop. [20] The tribunal ruled that the Standard Fruit Company must phase out the use of extremely hazardous pesticides.
The standard method of treatment in Florida as in other southern states is the use of broadspectrum chemical pesticides (e.g., carbaryl, ethoprop, and fonofos).
Of the three most extensively applied insecticides (phorate, ethoprop, and disulfoton), only ethoprop was detected in any of the water samples.
Of the 16 pesticides included in the present study, 9 were reported in detail on the AHS phase 1 questionnaires (chlorpyrifos, coumaphos, diazinon, dichlorvos, fonofos, malathion, parathion, phorate, and terbufos); 6 were initially queried on the phase 1 take-home questionnaire checklist (acephate, dimethoate, disulfoton, ethoprop, phosmet, and tetrachlorvinphos); and a new chemical introduced in 1995 (tebupirimfos) was reported initially on the phase 2 questionnaire.
Pesticides in the pilot study included cadusafos, chlorpyrifos, diazinon, dimethoate, ethoprop, malathion, omethoate, oxydemeton-methyl, and terbufos.
