1 Introduction

Trips is the most serious pest of vegetable crops [4-7; 916]. Crop damage depends on many factors: the size of the thrips, the size of its population, the phase of plant development for the period of plant damage, the duration of the period of damage.

To date, about 7,700 species of thrips have been recorded [8]. Trypses have piercing and sucking types of oral parts. As a result, they damage crops either during the absorption of food or by huge ovipositors.

Today, one of the promising areas for the development of a system of protective measures in the fight against trips is the use of new insecticides in modern agricultural technologies.

2 Materials and methods

The research was carried out on the experimental fields of the Fеdеrаl Stаtе Budgеtаrу Sсiеntifiс Institutiоn «Рrесаsрiаn Аgrаriаn Fеdеrаl Sсiеntifiс Сеntеr оf Russiаn Асаdеmу оf Sсiеnсеs».

As an object of research, open ground tomato of the Sedek agrofarm Azhur F 1 was used. The study material was the drugs Confidor Extra and Fufanon Nova.

The scheme of experience included the following options:

V-1. Control without processing.

V-2. Fufanon Nova. The norm of application is 13 ml/10 l of water. Spraying during vegetation. Operating fluid flow rate up to 1l/10 m2.

V-3. Extra’s confidence. The norm of application is 1.5 g/10 l of water (L). Spraying during vegetation. Operating fluid flow rate up to 1-1.5 l/10 m2.

The area of experimental dividers is 25 m2, accounting 10 m2. Location of subdivisions: rendomized in triple repetition.

The predecessor before laying the field experience was spring barley of the Ratnik variety. Soil treatment of the test site was carried out according to zonal recommendations. Autumn soil treatment began with a spill of 2 tracks, following grain harvesting.

Autumn plowing was carried out to a depth of 22-24 cm, with a plow ПН-4-35. Spring tillage began as the soil matured physically. Spring rescue was carried out to a depth of 22-24 cm with a plow ПН-4-35. Closing of spring moisture and simultaneous leveling of the field surface were carried out by heavy disc harrows diagonally of the site. Fertilizers were introduced under the first spring cultivation to a depth of 10-12 cm. In total, a cultivation 2 was carried out by the cultivator КПС-5.

The day before the landing of the seedlings in the field, machining with Ф-200 + МТЗ-80 was carried out. Then the drip tapes were laid out. Before laying the field experience, a complex mineral fertilizer azofosc (N16P16K16) was introduced at a rate of 400 kg/ha.

The seedling landing rate in open ground is 40.8 thousand units/ha. The landing scheme at double-sided placement is 1.4 x 0.30 m. The landing method is manual (seedlings); irrigation method drip irrigation system. Care for culture consisted in maintenance of a hybrid of a tomato F1 Openwork in a state, clean from weeds, and regulation of the water mode of the soil. Irrigation of the test site was carried out by drip method.

3 Research Methodology

Phytophages were counted 4 times for vegetation according to the Methodological Guidelines for Registration Tests of Insecticides, Acaricides, Mollusks and Rodenticides in Agriculture [3].

The yield accounting and structure were carried out with 10 registered plants from each plot according to the Manual on the conduct of registration tests of agrochemicals in agriculture [2], as well as the Methodology of the State Variety Testing of Crops [1].

4 Research results and discussion

4.1 Agrochemical characteristics of soil

The soil of the experimental site is a light chestnut subtype solonetzic. The actual content of humus along the horizon is 0-20 cm 0.88%, pHKCL 7.64.

Content of ammonium N 5.2 mg/kg, nitrate N 30 mg/kg, mobile P 27 mg/kg of soil, exchange K 260.0 mg/kg of soil.

4.2 Biometric indicators

Biometric measurements carried out during the period of butonization did not reveal any significant differences in the experience options. The average height of tomato plants for the study period 2018-2020. was in the range of 45.3-47.8 cm, the number of lateral shoots was 3.0-4.0 pcs.

The number of brushes 3.0 pcs. Per 1 plant. In the full flowering phase, a similar situation was observed, the average height of the plant was approximately the same 49.2-50.6 cm (within the error). In the fruiting phase, the maximum height of 58.5 cm of plants was fixed on the version with the test preparation V-3. Extra’s confidence. The number of lateral shoots and the number of brushes on 1 plant was approximately equal.

4.3 Crop structure elements

Harvest accounting for repetitions was carried out 5 times per vegetation from 10 registered plants of each plot. According to the results of the analysis, the V-3 option stood out.

Extra’s confidence. The total number of fruits for five fees was 182.0 pcs., Of these, 173.0 pcs were marketable with a total weight of 31.7 kg, while on other versions they turned out to be much less from 148 to 158 pcs. At the same time, the weight of commercial fruits was 22.0-26.0 kg.

The mass of fruits from 1 plant, also, in the version V3 was maximum, and was equal to 3.3 kg. At the same time, under the control without treatments, it was 2.3 kg, and on the version with the treatment of Fufanon-Nova - 2.7 kg. The average weight of the fruit according to the test versions was in the range, for all versions, from 153.4 to 183.0 g, the average number of fruits per 1 plant. was equal to 16.0 18.0 pcs. All the results obtained were mathematically processed.

According to the “Methodological guidelines for registration tests of insecticides, acaricides, molluscides and rodenticides in agriculture,” an assessment of the quality and quantity of crops is not carried out in our studies, we still tried to take this indicator into account.

The yield according to the test variants was 93.8 tons/ha, according to the V-2 variant. Fufanon-Nova - 110.2 t/ha, in the version V-3. Confidence Extra 134.6 tons/ha. The increase relative to control in the high-yield version was + 40.8 t/ha or 43.5%.

Accounting of phytophages on tomato open 1 soil Azhur F1. As a result of the analysis of Table 1, it was revealed that the average number of trips per escape before treatment with drugs on the control version and on other experimental versions was 10-11 pcs.

On the third day after treatment with the drugs presented in the experiment, their number decreased significantly. In the V-2 variant. Fufanon Nova already had an average of 6.0 units, which led to a decrease in numbers by 51.1%. In the V-3 variant. Their number was 2.5 units, which led to a significant decrease in the number of phytophages by 79.6%.

According to the “Methodological Guidelines for Registration Tests of Insecticides, Acaricides, Molluscocides and Rodenticides in Agriculture,” trypes were counted on the seventh day after treatment with drugs. As a result, a reduction in these types of pests on the shoots of Azhur tomato was recorded F1 both on the version V2 to 5.5 pcs, which amounted to 57.7%, and on the version V3 to 2.3 pcs, which amounted to 82.3%.

After two weeks, for 14 days after treatments, a visual inspection and counting of trypes on tomato plants was carried out similarly.

A slight growth of this pest was noted. Number of phytophages in variant V-2. Fufanon Nova averaged 9.8 units, in version V-3. Confidentiality Extra 6.3 pcs.

It should be noted that on the control version, thrips were also counted. From the initial reading of 11 pcs on the escape there was a significant increase to 21.3 pcs on the escape (for 14 days), which amounted to almost 93.6%.

5 Conclusion

1. The use of the test drug in the control of tyres led to a significant reduction in the pest for escape after treatments. The decrease in numbers relative to the initial one, adjusted for control after processing according to the days of accounting, was: by 3 days. 79.6%, by 7 days 82.3%, by 14 days. 67.5%.

2. The use of the insecticide Confidor Extra, with a drug consumption rate set by the manufacturer, gave a significant yield increase of + 40.8 t/ha or 43.5% relative to the control option.
