Cotton Spraying in the Sudan Gezira. I. Yield Increase from Spraying and Spraying Methods



Cotton Spraying in the Sudan Gezira. I. Yield Increase from Spraying and Spraying Methods



FAO Plant Prot. Bull, Rome 3(6): 86-92



In the first part of this paper, the author discusses the increased yield of cotton obtained since 1945 in the Gezira area of the Sudan (estimated at a total of about 225, 000 bales each containing 400 lb. ginned cotton) as a result of spraying with DDT against Empoasca lybica (de Berg.).
