WEED Management in COTTON -
1.Pyrithiobac Sodium e.g.Hitweed(Godrej);Staple(Du Pont) n Pyrimax(M'Agan) and
2.Propaquizafop 10 EC e.g.Society(Indofil) n Agil(M'Agan)
At the time of spray, there should be sufficient moisture in the soil
Cotton crop is highly sensitive to standing water during early growth stages. Hence, drain out the excess water from the cotton fieldsUproot and destroy leaf curl infected American cotton plants upto initiation of fruiting phase. Protect the crop against white fly vector by using recommended insecticides
A number of fungal disease are observed in kharif crops surrounding cotton fields which serve as reservoir of plant disease inoculum.
INSECT PESTS IN COTTON- To protect the crop from boll worm and tobacco caterpillar damage, the insecticides like Chlorantriniliprole 18.5 SL e.g.Coragen(Du Pont) should be sprayed when the damage inside fruiting bodies exceed 5 % and thereafter spray as and when need arises.
SYNTHETIC PYRETHROIDS are used on cotton for the control of boll worm complex.Do not use synthetic pyrethroids when the crop becomes 120- 130 days old.Leaf sucking insects like Red mites may be managed by using Danfuron (Danfuron 240 SC,Dhanuka) or Propargite 57 EC(Omite,Dhanuka;Simba,PI Ind).Imidacloprid 30.5 EC(Super Media,Dhanuka; Pollard,Bharat Insecticides) can also be used..Several borer kind of larvae can be managed by applying Flubendiamide 39 SC(Fame,Bayer;Fluid,Dhanuka)Very early instar stages of larva may be managed by applying Emamectin Benzoate 1.9% SC(Billo,Crystal).
Do not allow cotton crop to suffer for want of water during flowering and fruiting stages, otherwise a lot of shedding of flowers and bolls will take place resulting in poor yield
