Abstract

Potato leafhopper, a serious alfalfa pest, may be controlled by early harvest or by application of insecticide. Using natural enemies to battle the leafhopper is another option. Selective cutting in alfalfa fields may help curb leafhopper infestations by confining the pests in one strip, which also may harbor a fungus that helps to control the leafhopper.
