Sticky Cotton Action Team Activities

W. F. Lalor


Sticky cotton is caused by sugars deposited on fiber by insects -- primarily aphids and whiteflies. This report describes research on ways by which stickiness might be overcome in the harvesting and ginning processes. It is written specifically for ginners and describes the use of oversprays and enzymes in the field-to-mill system.
