Control Options for Thrips in Southeast Arkansas – 2003

Jeremy Greene, Charles Capps, Gus Lorenz, Patrick Smith, Don Johnson, and Glenn Studebaker


Trials were conducted to determine the effectiveness of in-furrow, seed-treatment, and foliar-applied insecticides in providing control of thrips populations in cotton. Seed treatments such as thiamethoxam (Cruiser) and imidacloprid (Gaucho) provided control equal to or better than aldicarb (Temik). Yields in plots treated with Cruiser were highest. Foliar sprays, compared without seed treatments or in-furrow products, were effective in controlling thrips and produced more cotton when compared with the untreated control.
