IPM Technical Lead and Pest Management for High Yield Research

This project investigates whether previous recommendations for fruit retention in cotton are compatible with the pursuit of very high yields. It tests the validity of assumptions regarding advice frequently provided for the management of early to mid-season pests and determines the limitations or capacity for timely crop compensation when the goal is to achieve high yields. The project also includes Integrated Pest Management (IPM) leadership for the industry via the CottonInfo Technical Lead, which ensures that growers and their advisors have access to current information that enables them to effectively manage pests, best preserve non-target species and reduce the risk of insecticide resistance.
