Abstract

Research was conducted in 2013 and 2014 to evaluate the influence of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) insecticidal seed treatments, planting date, and preemergence herbicides on thrips (Frankliniella fusca) infestations in cotton. Studies included a preemergence and soil texture evaluation on cotton development, an evaluation of thrips infestations, cotton development and yield following application of various preemergence herbicides and insecticidal seed treatments, and a planting date evaluation where different cultivars where planted with exclusion or inclusion of preemergence herbicide use at four different planting dates to determine the effect on thrips infestations, cotton development, and yield.
