Abstract:

Experiments were carried out at Vegetable Research and Development Station Bacau during 2008 – 2010. Four species of pests were caught in 2008 in variants with pheromone trap Mb 2008: Mamestra brassicae L., Discestra trifolii H., Autographa gamma L. and Agrotis spp. Most of the captures belonged to cabbage moth specie, in variant V1 - Mb – 2008 – 1.5 males/trap.

The flight of pests started in the second part of May, the maximum of curve being registered in the third decade of this month. At the beginning of June the male flight finished, the cabbage moth being present in cabbage crops only in larva stage.

In 2009 the population of cabbage moth was under Economical Damage Level (EDTA).

In 2010 the flight started in the third decade of May and it finished in early June. Two noctuide species were caught: Mamestra brassicae L. and Discestra trifolii H. Most of the catches belonged to cabbage moth specie.

The results obtained demonstrate the efficacy of the new synthesized pheromone variants - Mb 2008.
