A method of distributing Steinernema riobravis in cotton furrow irrigation and pink bollworm larval mortality response

Entomophilic nematodes, Steinernema riobravis, were released at a rate of 2.6 billion/acre in a cotton field in Arizona, USA, by gradually pumping a nematode slurry into furrow irrigation water. Larvae of Pectinophora gossypiella were buried at 4 soil depths and on the middle and top of row beds. Percentage larval mortalities 0, 14 and 39 days following nematode treatment showed that S. riobravis moved 6 inches down into the furrow and upward into the top of the row bed to find host larvae.
