Responses of Whitefly and Poinsettias to Insecticidal Controlled Atmospheres


Insecticidal controlled atmospheres for reducing whiteflies


Success of insecticidal controlled atmosphere (an O2 level of <2 ppm balance in N2) would provide a non-chemical option for controlling outbreaks of greenhouse and silverleaf whitefly and, thereby, reduce the economic losses resulting from the infestations. This research was conducted to determine if an environmentally safe system could be established for poinsettias.
