EFFECT OF THE RATE OF MATABIBOS ACAY OVER THE Armadillidium Vulgare CONTROL

The trial was conducted by the Plant Therapy Department of the National University of Mar del Plata in "Las Lomas" farm, at the southeast of Buenos Aires province, Argentina. Initial population of woodlice was 300 individuals per m2. Determinations of number of woodlice 7 days after application were performed.

RESULTS


It was determined that increases in the amount of MataBibos ACAY applied resulted in better pest control: from a minimum application of 3 kg/ha to 6kg/ha the control efficiency varied from 60% to almost 80%. By applying between 4 and 5 kg/ha in the southeast of Buenos Aires province the best ratio between control and economic efficiency would be obtained.
