G. D. Buntin, W. A. Hanna, J. P. Wilson, and X. Ni

February 2007


Pearl millet is grown in the southeast US as a temporary summer forage crop and as an alternative drought-tolerant grain crop for dryland summer production. It is used in bobwhite quail production, supplemental feeding for recreational wildlife, and as a feed for poultry. The objectives of this study were to understand the relative importance of key insect pests and evaluate the efficacy of the currently labeled insecticides, azadirachtin, cypermethrin, and spinosad for control of these key insect pests.
