Strategy for Use of New Insecticides Targeted at Tobacco Budworm and Bollworm Management

F. A. Harris, N. P. Tugwell, and R. E. Furr, Jr.


Earliness of crop maturity is an important aspect of cotton insect management and resistance management in the Midsouth. Benefits of earliness may not be fully realized for several reasons. An insect management system closely tied to crop development is needed to achieve an optimum cotton fruiting curve and to allow early termination of insecticide treatments. New insecticide chemistry is needed to effectively control resistant insect pests and contribute to resistance management systems. Pirate® controls several cotton insect pests including bollworm and tobacco budworm. This new insecticide may enhance Midsouth cotton insect pest management.
