The Economic Potential of Plant Monitoring to Guide the Termination of Late-Season Insect Control in Arkansas

M. J. Cochran, N. P. Tugwell, D. M. Danforth, C. D. Klein and J. P. Zhang


A grower survey is used to estimate insect control cost reductions from terminating insecticide treatments with a decision rule based on plant monitoring data. Results show significant potential to lower control costs by terminating treatments when the last effective boll population is no longer susceptible to damage.
