Abstract:The practical use of spray materials for cotton insect control is relatively new. Field tests involving this method of application were begun in 1946 and reports by Stevenson & Kauffman (1948), Watts (1948), Dean & Gaines (1950), Gaines & Wipprecht (1950), Fenton (1950), Chapman et al. (1950) and others indicated that organic insecticide sprays could be used as effectively as dusts in combatting cotton insects. In succeeding years the use of sprays increased rapidly, particularly in the western portion of the cotton belt.
