Clover flea is an intermittent pest of white clover in NZ pastures, ahiuch can cause severe damage. As there are few options available for control of this pest, AgResearch Lincoln scientist Scott Hardwick investigated whether or not foliar fertilisers influence the behaviour and survival of clover flea using bioassay techniques.

Current strategies rely on the use of insect growth regulators and organophosphate insecticides. Farmers in Northland report fewer problems with clover flea on paddocks treated with liquid fertilisers.

In the study, Nitrosol was shown to make a significant difference in the reduction of damage to the colver plants so treated.
