Abstract:Several plowdown dates and various cultural practices on cotton were evaluated for effects on spring moth emergence of Pectinophora gossypiella (Saunders). Results indicated that spring moth emergence is progressively higher with each delay in plowdown; the range in plowdown dates was from Oct. 2–6 to Jan. 5 in the 1967–68 study and from Sept. 3 to Jan. 3 in 1968–69. Various cultural practices affected spring moth emergence. Best results were obtained where plant residue was removed, indicating that a significant portion of the population had remained in the bolls. The greatest spring moth emergence occurred where only a stalk-shredding operation was performed.
