Abstract:During the summers of 1969-71, an average of 11,152 acres of cotton was examined weekly at an average season al cost of $1.65 per acre. Resulting information Contributed to grower decisions to eliminate pesticide applications season long from M, 82, and 71%, respectively, of the acreage during; these years and to make 1.6, 1.7, and 3.8 applications, respectively, per treated acre, largely for control of the pink bollworm, Pectinophora gossypiella (Saunders). Costs were much lower than under a grower-sponsored program in 1968, when 13,263 acres each automatically received 6 pesticide applications.
