Do Neonicotinoid Seed Treatments Have Value Regionally in Soybeans?

There has been a tremendous amount of scrutiny put on the neonicotinoid class of chemistry in recent years because of the potential link to declines in bee numbers. Researchers are working feverishly across the nation and the globe to determine the exact causes of bee decline. No doubt pesticides can and likely play a role to some degree, but there are many factors that also influence bee health such as habitat loss, Varroa mites, and diseases. . . . → Read More: Do Neonicotinoid Seed Treatments Have Value Regionally in Soybeans?

When to Terminate Bollworm Sprays in Late Season Bt Cotton

We have had numerous calls over the last couple weeks about small, 2-5 day old larvae, under bloom tags in Bt cotton that is near, at, or beyond cutout. All of the research done to this point suggests that cotton is safe from bollworm damage when it reaches node above white flower 5 plus 300 heat units. . . . → Read More: When to Terminate Bollworm Sprays in Late Season Bt Cotton
