Abstract:
The Marana-Avra Growers' Task Force and Arizona Cooperative Extension worked together to implement a comprehensive, community-wide insect management program. Growers worked in unison to implement a number of Integrated Pest Management techniques; including uniform optimal planting dates, trap cropping, pinhead square spray applications, in-season insect management, and late season management. This strategy focused on the area's primary pest, the pink bollworm (PBW). This program delayed the need to treat for PBW until late August and minimized secondary pest problems. However, research results on the effectiveness of trap crops were inconclusive.
