Abstract:
Experimental insecticides were evaluated for control of lygus bugs relative to commercial standards in cotton. These products were also evaluated for activity towards whiteflies and pink bollworms. CGA293343 was not effective when used as a side-dress material at layby, but was effective toward whiteflies, and towards lygus at higher foliar rates. Regent, Vydate and Mustang + Thiodan were highly effective for lygus control, while EXP61096A and Mustang alone performed poorly. Against whiteflies, CGA293343, Acetamiprid, and Mustang + Thiodan were most efficacious, while Mustang alone and with Thiodan were most effective towards pink bollworms.
