Abstract

Field trials in Lassen County demonstrated that granulated heptachlor was more effective against the alfalfa weevil than comparable dosages of heptachlor used as a spray. Applications in the dormant season, or as growth begins in the spring, are believed to kill the adult weevils before eggs are laid.
