Abstract
A trial, conducted at Namulonge Cotton Research Station during the 1966/67 season, is described in which an attempt was made to control the late-season cotton pests. A blanket treatment of ten weekly applications of DDT at 1 lb. per acre per application was made with a Uganda Long Boom and then seven further applications of 2 lb. carbaryl, t lb. fenitrothion, 1 lb. DDT, t lb. endrin and 1 lb. endosulfan with T-booms were compared with plots which received no further insecticides. Carbaryl gave good control of Dysderclls spp. but none of the insecticides gave any control of Cryptophlebia leucatreta (Meyr.). None of the treatments reduced the amount of dirty or unpickable cotton.
