Mar 8, 2019

Crop Protection WCRC WCRC2

The project, entitled “Integrated Pest Management for Cotton” commenced in September 1994 with scientists from four countries, Israel, Egypt, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe co-operating in a joint project funded by the Common Fund for Commodities through the International Cotton Advisory Committee. It seeks to improve the control of honeydew-producing sucking pests, through the use of novel insecticides, natural enemies, better spraying equipment and proper thresholds. Most of the experimentation, especially during the first two years of the project, was carried out in Israel and Egypt. This paper reports some of the more significant findings, with particular emphasis on the importance of natural enemies.
