CONTROL OF SLUGS IN SOYBEAN

A randomized complete block design with 3 replications was used. Plots were 20m x 20m and 9 treatments were evaluated. Molluscicide ACAY and 3 other baits were used in 2 rates (3 and 5 kg/ha) with the addition of a control treatment. Before baits application an evaluation of slugs presence was performed.

RESULTS


Evaluations made 7 days after baits application showed that Molluscicide ACAY produced the best results reaching 100% of control efficiency.
