South Florida Special Topics Meeting - Asian Bean Thrips In Green Beans - Shared screen with speaker view
Good morning to all!
Quick Survey https://ufl.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bmi7C7uHbDyke7H
Dominique Depaz- did not take the pre test
what screen are we on?
can you share a link to the quick guides and posters
just a note-
hero insecticide is a mix of two pyrethroids (not a pyrethroid with a neonic)
Hero contains bifenthrin plus cypermethrin
same cell - office is 239-658-3414 as you may know I am at SWFREC
Saw FDACs pest alert on Thrips parvispinus - any thoughts on potential pest status in veggies
if bean red node was not found, how do you explain the visual symptoms looking identical? on my farm in homestead it seems as if it takes a very heavy population to drag the plant down.
Unfortunately pigeon pea provides a good bridge over summer
have you considered essential oils such as Agropest (rosemary & thyme oil)
Because we mentioned about bean red node (caused by tobacco streak virus), id like to remind our growers that this virus is pollen transmitted during thrips feeding on leaves. Thus, this disease will be coming onto beans by wind driven pollen and any thrips that feeds on plants will be introducing this virus infected pollen into the plant. Not only this new Asian bean thrips. Just a side note FYI.
Has anyone been sampling cowpeas growing in field margins or wild areas?
DPI has not received samples from cowpeas.
There are wild vigna cowpeas all over south florida - Peace River (peas river) was named for them
FYI IR-4 is currently conducting residue trials for Torac on snap bean. EPA target submission is 2021.
are the beneficial insects not proving to be productive in these " wild" pigeon pea hedges?
Unfortunately with many of the ethnic gardens if they do spray it is probably likely to be a generic pyrethroid rather than a more selective chemistry
thank you everyone. this was a great meeting!
