This presentation is designed to help pest management advisors and growers better manage thrips on seedling cotton. Various management approaches including seed treatments and foliar insecticides are discussed. At-planting treatments are recommended for thrips control. However, the audience should come away with a better understanding about when and why foliar insecticides for thrips control are sometimes needed on top of at-planting treatments.
