IPM Approach in US Cotton with Agrevo Products

John Lublinkhof, Larry Todd, John Sanderson, Kent Taylor and Fred Strachan


Products such as Phaser, Ovasyn, and Decis have proven to be successful in an IPM approach. A Texas (Brazos bottom) site was chosen as a representative example where an "AgrEvo" program was compared to a "standard" program (choice of consultant). In this approach, an early season application of Phaser was made versus Vydate against fleahoppers. This was followed by three applications of Phaser + Ovasyn versus methyl parathion + Larvin targeting bollworm and tobacco budworm (latter application). Use of Phaser or Phaser + Ovasyn versus the use of Vydate and methyl parathion proved to be less disruptive to beneficials hence, allowing for reduction of mites versus a "flare up" of mites. Ovasyn, a miticide, also reduced the mite population.
