Monitoring Whitefly Susceptibility to ApplaudM. Yasui, P.C. Ellsworth, J. Lublinkhof, D. ComerAbstractA bioassay developed by one of the authors (MY) in 1993 was used to monitorsusceptibility of sweetpotato whitefly to Applaud in five different field locations.Whitefly populations were exposed to from 0 (untreated fields) to 4 (small plottrial) applications of Applaud. Susceptibilities of whiteflies, as measured by LC50sand LC95s, did not increase with exposure to Applaud (0 to 4 applications) norsince baseline measurements of susceptibility were made in 1993. Under currentpatterns of use (single use), risk of resistance to Applaud appears to be minimal.IntroductionApplaud« (buprofezin) was discovered in 1977 by Nihon Nohyaku, first registered in Japan in 1983, and is nowregistered in over 60 countries (Yasui, 1993). Prior to 1996, Applaud had only been evaluated in the U.S. in experi-mental plots for efficacy (e.g., Akey & Henneberry 1994; Ellsworth et al. 1994; Natwick 1994a &b; Palumbo 1994;Watson et al. 1994). In 1996 Arizona received a Section 18 emergency exemption allowing use of Applaud againstsweetpotato whitefly [ Bemisia tabaci (Genn.) (Strain B) = Bemisia argentifolii (Bellows & Perring); (a.k.a. silverleafwhitefly)] in cotton. This was the first time Arizona whitefly populations had been exposed to Applaud on a relativelybroad scale (ca. 70,000 A).In 1993 while conducting research at The University of Arizona, we developed a simplified Bemisia susceptibilitymonitoring technique for Applaud (Yasui, unpubl. data). In 1996 in cooperation with The Univ. of Ariz. (PCE) andAgrEvo USA Company (JL & DC), , Nihon Nohyaku (MY) further refined and used this technique to establishbaseline data prior to wide scale use of Applaud.MethodsBioassay Methods (brief)As an insect growth regulator, Applaud has no lethal effect on whitefly adults. Applaud, a chitin biosynthesis inhibi-tor, interferes with the normal molts of whitefly nymphs. Monitoring of nymphal mortality, therefore, is needed,instead of the more common and more convenient adult mortality bioassays (e.g., Prabhaker et al. 1992; Simmons &Dennehy 1996). Nymphal assays are difficult, especially when host material and specialized insect rearing facilitiesare necessary.In 1993, Yasui developed a simplified susceptibility monitoring technique which obviated the need for "clean" hostmaterial or any specialized equipment. With further refinement this past year, we established a protocol that success-fully uses foliage and whitefly eggs collected from the field of interest. We determined that the second leaf below theterminal (i.e., 1 leaf below the first folded leaf) contains the greatest concentration of similarly -aged whitefly eggs.Furthermore, we found that holding these leaves for 6 -8 days at 25 ░C yielded nearly uniform cohorts of settled 1stinstars, the ideal age for initiating the assay. With very simple tools (vials, scissors, water), a dissecting microscope,& reasonable control over near "room" temperature conditions, anyone with interest in a particular field populationcan conduct this bioassay, though it does require about 21 days to complete.257 tinue to reinforce the prudent use of this valuable active ingredient within an IPM and resistance managementpro-grams. Only one use of Applaud will be allowed for cotton in 1997. These data would indicate that under this patternof use, risk of resistance to Applaud is minimal.We have developed and presented a simplified, field -based, susceptibility monitoring technique which minimizes thetime and effort associated with an otherwise difficult bioassay. These data serve as a baseline for future susceptibilitymonitoring.References CitedAkey, D.H. & T.J. Henneberry. 1994. Plot trials with buprofezin for chemical control of SPWF in cotton.

There is noclear pattern of decreasing susceptibility within season with as many as 4 sprays (in a small plotcontext) nor after the recommended practice of 1 spray in the commercial fields.
