Cotton insect control (1990)
"These recommendations are based on research conducted in Missouri and are designed to provide · adequate yet economical pest insect control with a minimum of insecticide applications. · In certain areas and during occasional seasons · cotton insect pests do get sufficiently ahead of the parasites and predators to make insecticidal controls necessary.and economical. The application of any insecticide should be based on need. Methods for determining both. pest and beneficial insect* populations are available. Each producer can learn and apply these simple methods or have this service performed for a fee by private cotton insect scouting programs. When most of the recommended insecticides are applied to cotton fields, both pest and beneficial insects are destroyed. The pest insects often recover faster than beneficial ones, resulting in even more damage to production. Therefore, be sure you have an economic insect threat before applying insecticides."--First page.
