Autumn Protection of Winter Rape: Recommendations from "Agrimatсo-Ukraine"

Currently, the appearance of an unwanted guest - the winter weevil - has been noticed in the fields of winter rape.

The winter weevil is an insect common in Ukraine, which feeds on more than 50 species of plants from 36 families. It can cause damage to crops such as cotton, tomatoes, corn, sunflower, sugar beet, legumes, tobacco, winter cereals, soybeans, peas, pumpkin, squash, potatoes, vegetables, castor and hemp. The pest develops in two generations and damages plants at different stages of their development.

Winter caterpillars nibble plants from the soil, and also nibble on leaves and root necks of plants. They can leave completely destroyed plants in the row. Caterpillars of the first generation, which damage seedlings and young plants of sugar beet, sunflower, corn and other crops, are especially dangerous.

Protection measures against the winter scoop include proper tillage of the soil for winter crops, inter-row cultivation of the soil on row crops and soil treatment after harvesting the row predecessors of winter crops. These measures contribute to the death of caterpillars, pronymphs and pupae.

If a high concentration of caterpillars is observed, it is recommended to use insecticides that are in the "List of pesticides and agrochemicals approved for use in Ukraine." Processing is carried out in the evening, when the caterpillars are actively feeding on plants.
