Abstract:
An experimental cotton line, WC-12NL (nectariless, okra leaf early maturing) was compared in large plot (2-acre) replicated experiments with a standard cultivar, 'Deltapine 61' ( nectaried, regular leaf shape, full-season), for 3 seasons, 1986 to 1984 at 2 locations, Maricopa, AZ and Brawley, CA. Ethephon ("Prep") was applied to half of each plot when the crop was ca. 60% open. Pink bollworm (PBW) eggs were counted twice weekly on bolls and the 2 cottons were sprayed separately for PBW control when the egg infestation on bolls reached the action level. Seed cotton was harvested weekly as soon as bolls started to open. Over the 3 seasons and 2 locations, WC 12NL yielded 12% more total lint, 43% more cumulative lint at the third harvest date, and required only 59% as much insecticide to control PBW as did Deltapine 61.
