Synopsis

Synopsis

Phorate, an organic phosphate chemical, when seeded with wheat in a granular form controlled the hessian fly and stimulated fall forage growth. Seed treatments with phorate reduced stands and decreased fall forage yields and grain yields. Small reductions in germination and forage yields were obtained when phorate was applied as a fertilizer additive.
