Abstract
Laboratory tests [1] had indicated that several insecticides, notably gamma-BHC, were toxic to young larvae, and whilst it was probable that the cost of such treatments would be prohibitive, it was considered advisable to test them in the field. An opportunity to conduct an exploratory trial occurred in August, 1960, when a heavy infestation of larvae (c. 4 X 10" per acre) was discovered on a barley trial at Njoro. A preliminary examination of the site revealed no differences in the infestations on the different treatments of the original barley trial; the land was then cleared of barley by hand, the soil dug with mattocks, and all trash raked off.
