Expected occurrence of insect and mite pests in cotton Crop growth stage Common pests Occasional pests Emergence to 1st square Thrips, wireworms Aphids, spider Tobacco thrips and related species overwinter as adults, and possibly as immatures, on weeds, winter crops, and plant debris (i.e., litter) in the southeastern United States.10, Because thrips can significantly injure cotton and reduce yields or at least delay maturity, most cotton planted in the southeastern United States receives a prophylactic insecticide treatment. Pesticides are often used to control western flower thrips (Frankliniella occidentalis) in horticultural crops. 35). Reply. However, under adverse growing conditions, a foliar treatment may still be necessary. The economic injury level (EIL) and the economic threshold (ET) are core IP… Southwestern Entomologist. Effects of planting date on thrips (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) in cotton. Cotton aphids have been more prevalent than normal this year in NC. Pest management science. 1985 Sep;4(2):89–97. This will not provide control of the thrips, but it will let you know if a plant is becoming infested. Effect of migration, temperature, and precipitation on thrips infestations in south Texas. The information in this publication is provided for educational and informational purposes only. Wang H, Kennedy G, Reay-Jones FPF, Reisig DR, Toews MD, Roberts PM, Herbert DA, Taylor S, Jacobson AL, Greene JK. Begin inspections once the cotton reaches approximately 50 percent stand emergence. Additional best management practices (BMPs) for thrips in seedling cotton include the use of starter fertilizer39 and minimizing plant stress, such as that caused by herbicide injury, to help seedlings grow normally and quickly outgrow feeding injury. Shaking plants over or onto something dark, such as a black drop cloth or clipboard, is an excellent method for enumerating light-colored immature thrips (watch a thrips YouTube video that shows the methods of sampling for thrips). h�bbd``b`��@�q�`��*�S�`= Figure 2. Crop Science. Damage. Biology, crop injury, and management of thrips (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) infesting cotton seedlings in the United States. This is best achieved by treating the block at maximum bud swell or onset of full bloom. Stewart S D, Akin DS, Reed, J, Bacheler J, Catchot A, Cook D, Gore J, Greene JK, Herbert A, Jackson RE, Kerns DL, Leonard BR, Lorenz GM, Micinski S, Reisig D, Roberts P, Studebaker G, Tindall K, Toews M. Survey of thrips species infesting cotton across the southern US Cotton Belt. The role of morphological and chemical plant traits imparting resistance in Bt cotton genotypes against thrips. Thrips are part of the order Thysanoptera, and are common garden pests that suck plant juices and sometimes spread viruses. %%EOF The threshold for thrips is 2-3 thrips per cotton plant with immatures present. Control strategies rely heavily on chemical control used at planting, but issues with insecticide resistance are emerging that compel the use of additional tactics. Color mulches influence yield and insect pest populations in tomatoes. (Thripidae – Thysanoptera) Thrips are generally one of the main early season cotton pests. Adult WFT are about 1/16th of an inch long, and are long and narrow shaped, like grass seed. All thrips inhabit secluded areas on plants, such as unopened flower and terminal buds, which reduces exposure to insecticide applications. New York (NY): Springer US; 1995. They initially damage the cotyledons and then several other parts including the bolls and the types of damage vary according to the parts of the plant attacked. From 2000 to 2004, thrips infested a total of 25.5 million hectares throughout the U.S. and caused an estimated loss of 789,230 bales of lint. Figure 3. Last year, most of the cotton in Mississippi was sprayed for thrips at least one time and many fields were sprayed multiple times, even behind a seed treatment. Skip-row plant spacing does not influence the abundance of thrips in seedling cotton.29 However, within-row plant spacing might have an impact, with decreasing numbers of thrips reported with an increase in plant spacing in cotton30 and onions31 (another crop susceptible to thrips injury). Consider spraying only if 10 thrips per blossom are found when flowers are shaken onto a flat dark-colored surface and thrips are counted. Thrips tabaci, T. palmi and Scirtothrips dorsalis. q�%u�%-ށҫ�����P��S$}���٩Pb�b� v��H��З��C2 ��ā�M� �� � ��`�~����!�PC��� T�ȡ�s�AVOe�]�H�j����#�����G-�7�7Y��'�M=��A�%O�}@�4 However, since the establishment of western flower thrips (WFT), Frankliniella occidentalis, in Western Australia in 1993, this has become the more important pest in strawberries. and thrips (Thrips spp.) Scouting. However, western flower thrips is regarded to be a 'pesticide-induced problem', having developed resistance to pesticides from different chemical classes. 2018 Apr:1(2):892–898. However, these control agents help reduce thrips numbers at the infestation source, such as small grains and weeds, before they migrate into the cotton field. Influence of thrips injury on leaf development and yield of various cotton genotypes. Hang Blue or Yellow Sticky Traps within the growing area to monitor pest populations. Cultural control strategies, such as the use of cover crops, reduced tillage operations, delayed planting date, targeted irrigation, and starter fertilizer, can complement chemical control and likely help slow the development of insecticide resistance. Manipulations of predaceous arthropods are expensive, and ratios of costs to benefits regularly preclude the effective use of introducing or augmenting predators of thrips on cotton.38 Despite some natural enemies of thrips in seedling cotton, deliberate modification of beneficial organisms is not currently a practical strategy for managing thrips in the crop. Historically, the plague thrips, Thrips imaginis, was considered to be the main thrips pest of strawberries. In Parker BL, Skinner M, Lewis T. 2006;9(7):1364–1369. Figure 7. Some people use it even at home, but as much as possible, stay away from chemicals. We started seeing the first signs of inadequate control about 4 years ago and the problem has seemed to get worse every year. Olson DM, Davis RF, Brown SL, Roberts P, Phatak SC. 2002 Jul;42(4):1384. Cho K, Eckel CS, Walgenbach JF, Kennedy GG. Thrips (Thrips tabaci) of Cotton. Cook D, Herbert A, Akin DS, Reed J. In addition, imidacloprid + thiodicarb ( Bayer 2014 ) is available as a premix of … 2017 Aug;110(4):1563–1575. (eds. Treatment is only recommended if the following conditions are met: Infestation levels are “relatively high” Plants do not have adequate moisture Mummifying parasites are not present Fungal pathogens are not present … “Temik 15G was on the market for about 40 years and was used on a significant number of cotton acres for control of thrips and nematodes. Sources of plant resistance to thrips: a potential core component in cotton IPM. Aldicarb was very effective.” The pesticide, aldicarb, is making a comeback to control insect pests and nematodes in cotton. Thrips are some of the most damaging insect pests to the leaves of onions world-wide. Conversely, some insecticides can actually “safen” plants, allowing the use of a herbicide that would otherwise cause serious plant injury. Effects of skip-row planting pattern and planting date on dryland cotton insect pest abundance and selected plant parameters. This can knock the thrips off the plant and can be repeated as often as the plant can handle it. Chemical Solutions In many agricultural communities or commercial plantations with a large-scale infestation of thrips, it is common to resort to the use of chemical control. For example, the Cotton Insect Management section of the South Carolina Pest Management Handbook recommends that insecticides be applied as foliar sprays to control thrips in seedling cotton (up to four or five true leaves) when populations meet or exceed two or more thrips per plant, with particular attention paid to when immature thrips appear, signaling that insecticides used at planting are no longer providing control.14 Shaking plants in large white containers, such as drinking cups, is a good way to count dark-colored adult thrips. Immature stages of tobacco thrips. Clemson (SC): Clemson Cooperative Extension, Land-Grant Press by Clemson Extension; 2020 Oct. LGP 1096. http://lgpress.clemson.edu/publication/best-management-practices-for-thrips-thysanoptera-thripidae-in-cotton/. Preventative control with insecticides used at planting is the most common method of addressing tobacco thrips in cotton. Ratings ‘1’ through ‘5’ represent advancing injury to true leaves, with ‘0’ indicating no visible injury. Admire (0.1 and 0.05 lb a.i./acre), Adage, Temik (0.75 and 0.53 lb a.i./acre) and Gaucho (6 fl oz a.i./acre) provided high levels of control of thrips. 2019 Mar;75(3):867–877. are two of the most economically important insect pest groups impacting cotton production in the USA today, but are not controlled by current transgenic cotton varieties. 34 p.

Individuals who use agricultural chemicals are responsible for ensuring that their intended use of the chemical complies with current regulations and conforms to the product label. Image credit: Jeremy Greene, Clemson University. Adults and nymphs infest the underside of cotyledons, young leaves and growing points, rasp the plant surface and suck out the cell contents: affected areas are silvery-white; younger leaves become distorted; growing points can die. Hose down resilient plants with high-pressure water, focusing on the bottom/underside of the leaves. are two of the most economically important insect pest groups impacting cotton production in the USA today, but are not controlled by current transgenic cotton varieties. Miyazaki J, Stiller WN, Wilson LJ. North Carolina State University. Since thrips enter the field during and soon after plant emergence, these predators are usually not present in high enough numbers to control a thrips infestation. Chemical control and action thresholds. IRAC Mode of action classification scheme, version 9.4. Insecticides applied at planting for control of thrips can interact with cotton herbicides in a variety of ways. 1995. Image credit: Jeremy Greene, Clemson University. Chemical Control Effective chemical control is complicated by the development of insecticide resistance. % 쏢 Clean cultivation and destruction of crop residues (fallen leaves, twigs etc.) Non-chemical options (presented hereafter) for managing thrips in cotton should be used when possible to slow the development of resistance to insecticides. Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences. Toler HD, Augé RM, Benelli V, Allen FL, Ashworth AJ. J. Across most of the Cotton Belt, thrips are considered the number one pest of seedling cotton. In many field crops, thrips are only a significant pest at the seedling stage, however thrips in summer pulses can cause flower abortion or pod distortion. Thus, seed or foliar-applied chemical insecticides are typically required to protect cotton from these pest groups. Parasitoids, predators, and disease organisms can provide natural biological control of thrips, but it is almost always not enough protection to prevent infestations of thrips from having an economic impact. 109 0 obj <>stream 2017 Jan;162(1):30–40. Apply chemical pesticides only if pest population crosses the ETL. Another cultural control strategy involves using the inherent properties of cotton varieties to withstand injury from thrips. This publication may be reprinted in its entirety for distribution for educational and informational purposes only. Plant bugs can be a pest in cotton beginning at pinhead square, on through cut-out. Thrips Control: Monitoring & Prevention – Inspect plants early and often for signs of thrips activity or damage. Furthermore, by mid-March when most of the lettuce production is finished, these populations can pose a threat to seedling cotton. Registered under the trade name AgLogic 15G, this new product is expected to equal Temik. An Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program designs compatible and ecologically sound combinations of pest suppression tactics, using both cultural practices and biological control methods. Numerical ratings of progressive feeding injury to cotton seedlings caused by thrips. Toews MD, Tubbs RS, Wann DQ, Sullivan D. Thrips (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) mitigation in seedling cotton using strip tillage and winter cover crops. It is recommended that specially made blue traps be used, rather than standard yellow traps; the blue traps seem to be more effective and it is easier to see the light-colored nymphs on blue than on yellow. Annals of the Entomological Society of America. Heavy plant residue at the time of cotton planting can also reduce thrips populations and damage to cotton. Spray chemicals Dimethoate30 EC or Methyl O Demeton25 EC @ 500-700 ml/ha when the population reached ETL. Often the first sign that western flower thrips is present in a crop is the failure of insecticide to control thrips. Open Journal of Soil Science. This publication may be reprinted in its entirety for distribution for educational and informational purposes only. Manag. are two of the most economically important insect pest groups impacting cotton production in the USA today, but are not controlled by current transgenic cotton varieties. Producers and managers of cotton in the southeastern United States should consider using a multi-tactic approach that uses several BMPs in an overall IPM approach for managing thrips. Photo by Scott Stewart, UTIA. This was also true for sunflowers, which were also susceptible to powdery mildew as well as thrips damage. thrips eggs laid on the plant, eggs hatched, and immature thrips are surviving). However, these control agents help reduce thrips numbers at the infestation source, such as small grains and weeds, before they migrate into the cotton field. Delay will allow thrips to enter the opening flowers and reduce exposure to the insecticide. Interaction. v|�ü�Q�Q�5��9�/�VE�{,X���w2������;�z�qĿ���8@� �. 1984 Mar;77(2):208–220.

From plants across the field, sample 60 leaves divided among the top, middle, and lower portion of a plant to determine actual infestation levels. Plant bugs ( Lygus spp.) Please refer to the most recent Cotton Insect Management Guide for material rates and control options. Thrips damage was significantly lower in the Adage ST, Gaucho ST, and The tip of the abdomen is curved and abdominal segments are transversely banded with dark brown lines. Despite these hurdles, advances in genetic engineering have produced a cotton trait that uses antixenosis to deter injury from thrips.24 Cotton with this trait is expected to be commercially available in 2022. Figure 1. Journal of economic entomology. Certain insecticides can increase plant susceptibility to certain herbicides. Chemical control of western flower thrips can be difficult. 61-70. Tobacco thrips are the most common thrips species that infest North Carolina cotton. Feeding injury typically does not become apparent until after tissue grows and expands. Although there are many species of thrips, the western flower and onion thrips are the most common species in North America. Entomologia Experimentalis et Applicata. All thrips inhabit secluded areas on plants, such as unopened flower and terminal buds, which reduces exposure to insecticide applications. Twice a week, as the cotton emerges and before true leaves appear, scout fields where postemergence sprays will be used. Rummel DR, Quisenberry JE. Scouting. Background: Plant bugs (Lygus spp.) Often the first sign that western flower thrips is present in a crop is the failure of insecticide to control thrips. In general, they are not host specific; however; species such as onion thrips and tobacco thrips feed on plants in specific families. They also superficially resemble some other thrips species that, if mistaken, may result in poor control because the insecticides selected may not be efficient against chilli thrips. Insecticides used at planting for thrips are applied to the seed or placed in the furrow with seed as liquid or granular formulations. A web-based tool for predicting risk from tobacco thrips in cotton. Adult females of tobacco thrips deposit eggs primarily into the cotyledons (seed leaves) and initial true leaves of cotton seedlings.6 Larvae emerge from hatched eggs in less than a week, depending on temperature,7 feed on leaf cells for approximately another week before undergoing a short (a few days) resting stage, and then turn into newly formed adults that seek mates and start the entire process over again.8 Tobacco thrips can have multiple generations per year,9 with only a generation or two having an impact on cotton. Thrips are also vectors of tobacco streak virus and tomato spotted wilt virus. This means that all the treatments behaved in the same fashion against the pest. Cotton thrips infestation predictor: a practical tool for predicting tobacco thrips (. J. p. 61–70. Environmental Entomology. Heavy residue can be achieved by incorporating a winter cover crop into the rotation as well as reducing tillage.25,26 Cover crops have been adopted because of numerous other benefits, including suppressed weed pressure,27 conserved soil moisture,28 and reduced nematode injury.28 Sanitation (also known as clean culture) is commonly used as a cultural control technique for numerous insect pests, but bare soil (without any plant residue) promotes higher populations of thrips and does not decrease thrips injury on young cotton plants. h�b```f``r``a`P2ca@ �+s\PrQ�6`��e���0ٲ����F�*Y����̜3��Qb�u�3��1 endstream endobj 84 0 obj <>stream Image credit: Sophia Conzemius, Clemson University.

Host-plant resistance (HPR) deters colonization of and injury from thrips by making the plant less palatable to thrips (antixenosis) and/or increasing mortality or reducing longevity and reproduction of thrips on the resistant plant (antibiosis). An Insecticide to Control Thrips. and thrips (Thrips spp.) They also superficially resemble some other thrips species that, if mistaken, may result in poor control because the insecticides selected may not be efficient against chilli thrips. Marshall MW, Williams P, Nafchi AM, Maja JM, Payero J, Mueller J, Khalilian A. Journal of Economic Entomology. These small insects have piercing-sucking and rasping mouthparts and feed on almost all portions of the cotton plant, with the most significant injury occurring on seedlings (plant emergence to five true leaves).1,2 Excessive feeding injury can produce severely stunted plants (figure 1), often resulting in loss of yield or, at least, a delay in crop maturity. Tobacco thrips are the species that are encountered more than 90% of the time in Mississippi. Other species of importance in cotton closely resemble tobacco thrips, with the most notable species being the western flower thrips, Frankliniella occidentalis Pergande. Foliar insecticide options include the systemic insecticides Orthene, Bidrin, and dimethoate.
