Figure 3A-3D. The total number of scouting observations for flea beetle on broccoli and cabbage and the percent of observations in which no flea beetle were observed.  From San Juan (SJ) and Santa Ana (SA) scouting records, Phil Foster Ranches, 1997-2013.

Fig 6CFig 6D

Figure 6A-6D. The aphid severity index for broccoli and cabbage at San Juan and Santa Ana ranches.  The severity index was calculated as 100*(1w+2x+3y+4z)/4, where w represents the percent of all observations of very low aphid populations, x is the percent of all observations of low aphid populations, y is percent of observations of moderate aphid populations, and z is percent of high aphid populations. From scouting records, Phil Foster Ranches, 1997-2014.

Fig 7AFig 7B

Fig 7CFig 7D

Figure 7A-7D. The percent of all scouting observations in which no aphids were present. From scouting records, Phil Foster Ranches, 1997-2014.

Fig 8A

Figure 8A. Total brassica acreage and the number of applications of inputs with activity against aphids (PyGanic, M-Pede, Aza-Direct). From yield and inputs records, Phil Foster Ranches, 1997-2014. 

Fig 8B

Figure 8B. Percent of plantings receiving one or more applications of inputs with activity against aphids (PyGanic, M-Pede, Aza-Direct). From yield and inputs records, Phil Foster Ranches, 1997-2014.

Fig 9AFig 9B

9A. Broccoli, San Jan. 9B. Cabbage, San Juan

Fig 9CFug 9D

9C. Broccoli, Santa Ana. 9D. Cabbage, Santa Ana.

Figure 9A-9D. The cabbage worm severity index for broccoli and cabbage at San Juan and Santa Ana ranches.  The severity index was calculated as 100*(1w+2x+3y+4z)/4, where w represents the percent of all observations of very low cabbage worm incidence/severity, x is the percent of all observations of low incidence/severity, y is percent of observations of moderate incidence/severity, and z is percent of high incidence/severity. From scouting records, Phil Foster Ranches, 1997-2014.

Fig 10

Figure 10. Fig. 10. Number of input applications with activity against cabbage worms and total brassica acres. From inputs and yield records, Phil Foster Ranches, 2002 - 2014.  

Fig 11

Figure 11. Number of input applications with activity against onion thrips and red onion yields. From inputs and yield records, Phil Foster Ranches, 2002 - 2014.
