Many of the innovations for successful control have resulted from the work of Agricultural Research Service scientists, such as the discovery in 1936 that selenium is absorbed by plant roots and carried to foliage where it kills aphids, which became the first systemic insecticide; finding genetic resistance to corn earworm
in a line of flour corn in 1941; and developing the sterile male insect release technique that led to the eradication of the screwworm from the United States in 1966, a method that is being used today to keep this and other pests like the Mediterranean fruit fly out of the country.
