PLANS FOR FIGHTING
INSECTS ON TOBACCO
(By Jam eg T. Conner, Jr.,
-N. Or State College)
Insects cause many thousands of
dollars loss every year tq tobacco
growers but they can be kept under
Many farmers, especially in the
eastern and border belts, have had
to practice insect control from the
time the plants come up in the bed
straight through to the last priming.
Both dusta'and sprays are being used.
Not "only do they have to contend
with the same pests year afer year,
but occasionally a new pest crops up
to be dealt with. 'Hie tobacco .split
worm, otherwise known as the potato
tubenpoth, has caused considerable
damage In scattered sections of the
state this' year.
Com aeon Pests
Of the more common and most in
jurious pests of tobacco, the tobacco
hormworm is the best known. It is
very rarely present fat sufficient
numbers to cause damage in either
the plant bad or on newly set plants,
but usually is on Held plants. In
addition to cultural control practices
such as hand picking, cutting stalks
upon completion of priming and fall
planning, these pests may be con
trolled with either (I) cryolite
spray, (2) cryolite dust, (3) peris
green-lead arsenate (1-6) spray, (4)
peris green arsenate (1-6) dust
Tobacco flee beetles are usually
present in sufficient numbers to
cause damage in any stage of growth,
but when present in large numbers,
cause the farmer the most concern
in plant beds and on needy set plants.
Control is given by the use of the
following duets: (1) Rotenone 1%,
(2) cryolite, (8) peris green lead \
Budworms are very common
throughout the tobacco growing area,
but in spike of their continued pre
sence from Jeer to year, are one of
the easiest pests to control on to
bacco. As these pests est into tha
bods or unfolded leaves as 1"

prior to settlor *t the rate
of 11 to 20 pounds per acre or bp
dropping a small amount of the bait
next to each plant In tbr field, if
the injury is general over the field.
In addition to these insect
there are several more which i
ly exact their toll from the
farmer; further free Information
all these peats of tobacco may be had
by writing to the Extension Ento
mologist, State College Station,
Total production of all tobacco is
new indicated for the 'State at 891,*
426,000 pounds, the Agricultural Es
timating Service reported Saturday.
This is 9 per cent more than the 1946
production and nearly 1 per cent leas
than the July 1 estimate. Excessive
rains in type 12 damaged some to
bacco, but not so much as early re
ports indicated. Generally, the to
bacco is bring banted with little loss
despite labor shortages and rains.
The estimate of average yield for the
State decreased 2 per cent from July
1 to the 1,088 pounds per acre now
Type 12: Growers of type 12,
Eastern. North Carolina floe-cared,
suffered some losses due to excessive
rainfall. Generally they have been
able to bent the tobacco, as it ripened
after the thins.- Type 12 production
is estimated to* be down 2 per cent
from July 1 reports and 9 per cent
more than last year. The production
is now indicated as 481,200,000
pounds compared with the 1946 pro
duction of 395,360,000 pounds. 'The
yield estimate was lowered 26 pounds
per acre below previous estimates to
1,100 pounds. y
