Cotton aphid control has become difficult with currently registered pesticides. Research has shown Furadan 4F insecticide/nematicide is a very effective aphicide. However, concern has been expressed over the potential negative impact its use would present to avian populations. As a condition for use under Section 18 of Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), as amended, wildlife monitoring programs were conducted where this product was used. Data generated from these programs indicate no adverse effect on wildlife resulted from foliar sprays of Furadan 4F for control of aphid on cotton in 1995.
