Cotton insect resistance studies in the western cotton growing area of Tanzania


Cotton insect resistance studies in the western cotton growing area of Tanzania



Insect Science and its Application 6(3): 379-384



DOI: 10.1017/s1742758400004665

The bollworm Heliothis armigera is the major pest of cotton in Tanzania. The commercial cotton varieties have the ability to compensate for early loss of fruiting points caused either by physiological stress or bollworm damage; and therefore early sowing, together with a blanket spraying regime, is recommended.
