Six replicated field trials were undertaken to evaluate Fastac (alphacypermethrin, 10% EC), Karate Zeon (lambdacyhalothrin, 25% capsule suspension) and Sumi-Alpha (esfenvalerate, 5% EC) applied as broadcast sprays in combination with pre-emergence herbicides, for the control of greasy cutworm (Agrotis ipsilon aneituma) caterpillars in seedling maize and sweetcorn (Zea mays).
