Acaricides for control of red spider mite as a pest of tea in Ceylon


, : Acaricides for control of red spider mite as a pest of tea in Ceylon. International Pest Control 14(2): 6-10, 20

Oligonychus coffeae (Nietn.) is a serious pest in almost all the tea growing areas of Sri Lanka (Ceylon). The author briefly reviews the morphology and bionomics of the mite, describes the damage it causes to the leaves, and gives tables showing the results obtained in tests carried out in the Uva district in 1967-68 to evaluate the effectiveness against it of 16 acaricides.

Cutaneous immunity, which is a key defence against the development of skin cancers, is suppressed by even small doses of ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Preventing this UV-induced immunosuppression may therefore reduce the incidence of skin cancer. Ni...

Nitric oxide (NO) is an endogenous vasodilator that plays an important role in pulmonary hypertension. It is produced from the amino acid L-arginine by the enzyme nitric oxide synthase (NOS). L-arginine is also the substrate for arginase which pro...
