A Study of the Effect of Cotton Worm on Boll Development and Cotton Yield



A Study of the Effect of Cotton Worm on Boll Development and Cotton Yield



Jl. Econ. Ent., Concord, N. H, 6, 489-491



As a result of observations made during 1919 in Alabama it was found that injury to foliage by the cotton worm does not kill the plants or cause loss of weight in the bolls, but the unopened bolls mature much earlier under boll-weevil conditions, and in years of abundant moisture the stripping of rank-growing cotton two months before a killing frost is considered beneficial rather than injurious.
