Cost of Insect Control in Tennessee Cotton Production: Results of a 1997 Survey of Farmers

Elizabeth R. Edens, Burton C. English, James A. Larson and Roland K. Roberts


Survey results indicate that damage caused by insects to cotton yield is greater in Southwest Tennessee than in the Northwest. Nearly 1/2 of the damage expressed in net returns foregone was caused by the boll weevil. While potential yields are estimated to be nearly the same in southwest and northwest regions of the state, expenditures to control insects and reductions in yield are higher in the southwest region of the state.
