Performance Summary of Fipronil Insecticide on Cotton

Richard Shaw, H.S. Yang


In trials conducted since 1989, foliar sprays of fipronil have provided control equal to or better than commercial standards for thrips, boll weevils and plant bugs at rates as low as 10 times less than the commercial standards. The spectrum of pests controlled by fipronil offers potential for fipronil to replace mixtures of more than one insecticide when combinations of these species reach damaging numbers at the same time.
