Utilizing Natural Biological Control by the Cotton Aphid Fungus

Don Steinkraus, Jon Zawislak, Gabriele Boys, Gus Lorenz, and Patricia O’Leary


The Cotton Aphid Fungus Sampling Service is a program that helps cotton growers manage cotton aphid problems. It is located in a laboratory at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. The program has been free to participants since 1993 because it is funded by Cotton Incorporated and the University of Arkansas. Each year the service diagnoses the fungal prevalence levels in about 300-400 cotton fields from around the Midsouth and Southeast. The information on this natural enemy is used to make IPM decisions for cotton aphids.
