Abstract:
Plant derived oils (cottonseed and soybean) in greenhouse and field studies were promising for sweet potato whitefly, Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) control. Cotton seedlings treated with oil in the greenhouse repelled whiteflies up to 7 days and high mortality of treated larvae, pupae and adults occurred. In the field, application of crude cottonseed oil to cotton with high air-blast, ground spray equipment suppressed whitefly populations thoughout the season.
