Abstract:Listing, disking. and relisting the land with modern tractor-mounted equipment following cotton harvest plus a preplanting irrigation gave 100% control of overwintering bollwoms, Heliothis zea (Boddie) and tobacco bud- worms, H. virescens (F.). In a pepper field, emergence of bollworm moths from diapausing pupae was reduced about 55% by listing the land. About 73% of the tobacco bud worms emerged in March, and about 65% of the bollworms in April.
