Keywords:Onion thrips, Chemical control, Allium cepa
The efficacy of 14 different insecticides was tested for the control of onion thrips Thrips tabaci (Lindeman, 1889) on onion in Itajaí Valley, SC during 2018. The insecticides were sprayed six times at intervals of about seven days, we evaluated the number of nymph of thrips per plant 48 hours after spray, visually rated for thrips damage at 96 DAT and total and commercial onion bulb production. Significant diferences were observed between various insecticides evaluated. The treatments formetanate hydrochloride, spinetoram and abamectin proved the best thrips control, less thrips damage and good total and commercial productivity. The insecticide profenofos + cypermethrin exhibited reduction of thrips nymph and better total and comercial production comparing control however not reduced thrips damages. The insecticides thiacloprid, thiamethoxam + lambda-cyhalotrin, and Imidacloprid reduced the thrips density but had similar results for thrips damages and onion bulb production comparing with control, excepting total productivity for the neonicotinoids thiacloprid and and Imidacloprid.
