Resistance management for sustainable agriculture and improved public health

Insecticide resistance in the pea and bean weevil has been detected in the UK

Tags: ,

Urgent research to understand the nature and extent of insecticide resistance in an increasingly damaging pest of peas and beans is underway at Rothamsted Research. The work is in response to reports of failure to control the pea and bean weevil (Sitona lineatus) with pyrethroid sprays, which are a special chemical class of active ingredients found in many modern insecticides used by growers. For further information see the resistance alert on the Rothamsted Research website
