EFFICIENCY OF TWO FORMULATIONS OF DICHLORVOS IN CONTROUNG THE RICE WEEVIL, Sitophilus oryzae, AT STORED WHEAT SEEDS

Aiming to evaluate the curative and protective effects of Dichlorvos in two formulations applied directly on wheat seeds, in controling the rice weevil Sitophilus oryzae (L, 1763) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) this experiment was conducted. With a CO2 sprayer were applied 7.5g, 10g, 15g and 20g a.i. of Dichlorvos (DDVP-500) and 12g a. i. of Dichlorvos (DDVP-1000) diluted in 0.5 liters of water per ton of seeds. All doses, except 7.5g a.i. of Dichlorvos, presented an efficient control of the rice weevil in stored wheat seeds.
