Abstract:
Reduction of populations of the B strain (poinsettia) of sweetpotato whitefly (SPWF), Bemisia tabaci Gennadius, resulted from applications of buprofezin or amitraz to cotton in central Arizona (Maricopa, AZ). Control was fair to good control for this insect. However, yields of seed cotton in treated plots were not increased significantly compared to untreated plots, following three applications of these insecticides during the season. Similar results on percentage sugar on lint and lint stickiness from honeydew of SPWF in both treated and untreated plots were obtained.
