Title:
Chemical Control of the Sweetpotato Whitefly in Cotton
Author:
Watson, Theo F.
Issue Date:

Journal:
Cotton: A College of Agriculture Report
Abstract:
Both registered and experimental insecticides were evaluated for effectiveness against the sweetpotato whitefly in several field experiments at Yuma, Arizona. Best results were obtained with combinations of two insecticides, particularly a pyrethriod and an organophosphate, rather than with individual materials. Results of these experiments indicate that unusually heavy infestations can be currently controlled even though sustained use of these insecticides would probably lead quickly to the development of resistance.
