The Australian root and tuber vegetable crop group includes crop such as carrot, beetroot, and the smaller root and tuber industries of swede and radish. Of the 56 minor use permits current for the root and tuber vegetable crop group in early 2010, six minor use permits – involving four molecules – had been issued for a variety of lepidopteran pests, indicating a lack of registered insecticide options. This report presents data generated from field efficacy and ‘good laboratory practice’ residue trials with Belt 480 SC Insecticide in protected cropping (including hydroponics) Asian greens of leafy vegetables, protected cropping (including hydroponics) lettuce, protected cropping (including hydroponics) and field grown herbs, and root and tuber vegetables which will allow for a submission for registration to the APVMA for the control of various lepidopteran pests.
