Non-Insect Related Sticky Cotton

Steven S. Hague, John R. Gannaway


On the High Plains of Texas physiological sugars are usually the cause of sticky cotton. Immature cotton fibers killed by a freeze are often sticky. Genetic variations which may influence stickiness exist. Breeding efforts may be an effective course of action to alleviate physiologically derived stickiness.
