Abstract:Seedlings of two cotton, Gossypium hirsutum L., cultivars were grown in the greenhouse free from nematode, mite, or insect pests at Dallas, Tex., in 1985. Aldicarb was applied weekly at rates labeled for cotton. Growth measured as number of squares, leaf area, plant wet weight, and percent dry matter after 5 weeks was regressed against rate applied, square of the rate applied, and interaction of rate and date of application. No positive growth response was demonstrated for cotton. Instead, a negative response was found for leaf area, wet weight, and percent dry matter to rate of aldicarb and interaction of rate and date of application in 'Paymaster 145', and for leaf area and wet weight to rate × date interaction in 'Texas Marker TM-1 '. In both cultivars, number of squares was negatively correlated with the square of the rate applied.
