USGA Summary Points:Experimental treatments of baculovirus to creeping bentgrass successfully killed medium-sized black cutworm larvae when applied at a rate of 2.3 X 1010 virus particles per 1000ft2, but not when applied at a lower rate of 4.6 X 109 virus particles per 1000ft2. Successful treatments of baculovirus formulations provided levels of control similar those provided by the chemical standard, Talstar S (bifenthrin). Cutworm feeding damage in baculovirus treated plots demonstrated that the slow speed of kill by the experimental virus treatments may require applications that target younger larvae. Initial evaluations suggest reasonable storage stability of experimental formulations of AgipMNPV.
