Evaluating VipCot™ against Lepidopteran Pests in Louisiana

D.R. Cook, M.M. Willrich, B.R. Leonard, K.D. Emfinger, M. Purvis, and S.H. Martin


The bollworm, Helicoverpa zea (Boddie), and tobacco budworm, Heliothis virescens (F.) have historically been major pests of cotton in Louisiana. Studies were conducted during 2002 and 2003 to evaluate the performance of the VipCot technology against bollworm and tobacco budworm infestations in Louisiana. The VipCot technology reduced damaged squares and bolls compared to conventional cotton without heliothine control, with few exceptions. VipCot provided yield protection against heliothines similar to the insecticide-based control strategy applied to conventional cotton.
