    Abstract Southeastern potato growing regions from Coahuila and Nuevo León contribute with 15% to domestic production. Such production has been impacted by several factors, in particular Bactericera (=Paratrioza) cockerelli Sulc potato psyllid, one of the most important pests affecting this crop. Its control is based on Insecticide applications, leading to unsatisfactory results and high selection pressure. Five insecticides were evaluated in four field populations of B. cockerelli from the growing region, using a susceptible laboratory line for comparison. The field populations were collected from greenhouse and commercial orchards located at Huachichil, Saltillo, Raíces and San Rafael localities. All… More >
