Technical Abstract: A single application of adherent, flour encapsulated malathion provided similar control of chewing insect pests of corn ears compared to five conventional sprays at 50-500 lower rates of a.i. Predators were not significantly affected, ear mold levels were lower, and no residues were present at harvest.
