Potential of Co-Fumigation with Phosphine (PH3) and Sulfuryl Fluoride (SO2F2) for the Management of Strongly Phosphine-Resistant Insect Pests of Stored Grain.

J Econ Entomol 2018 Dec;111(6):2956-2965

Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, Ecosciences Precinct, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

Resistance to phosphine (PH3) in key insect pests of stored grain is increasing, with a requirement for maintaining a dose as high as 1 mg l-1 for 14 d for effective fumigation, which is difficult to achieve under most commercial storage conditions. There is no suitable replacement for PH3, as most of the available alternatives suffer from specific weaknesses, creating an urgent need to increase the efficacy of this fumigant. One such possibility is co-fumigation of PH3 with another fumigant, sulfuryl fluoride (SO2F2-SF), with the goal of decreasing the time required for a successful fumigation. Read More
