Recent research in southern New Mexico has illustrated that early-season infestations of western flower thrips, Frankliniella occidentalis (Pergande), can be a limiting factor in Acala 1517-C cotton production (Race 1961). Furthermore, this research showed that phorate and DiSyston® (O-O-diethyl S-[2-(ethylthio) ethyl]phosphorodithioate) applied as granules into the seed furrow at planting were more effective than nonsystemic spray applications to cotton seedlings for thrips control. Since then, many New Mexico cotton growers routinely apply these insecticides at planting.
