Smith, Auburn University Extension entomologist </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Most of the attention on (Alabama) cotton has been directed towards plant bugs during the past two weeks. Economic numbers of nymphs have appeared in fields that had adults in late June and early July. Where the population was detected by fieldmen, controls were applied. All recommended insecticides seemed to do a good job. One point I will make here is that some inexperienced fieldmen may have not picked up the just hatched immature plant bugs, which are very small at that stage. There seems to be a gap of time between when we stop seeing adults and when we find the small nymphs.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://southeastfarmpress.com/management/treatment-decisions-being-made-wide-array-alabama-insects-and-mites" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://southeastfarmpress.com/management/treatment-decisions-being-made-wide-array-alabama-insects-and-mites#comments Management Pesticides Tue, 29 Jul 2014 12:41:00 +0000 107961 at http://southeastfarmpress.com New ‘Focus on Cotton’ webinar looks at Southeast irrigation, foliar diseases http://southeastfarmpress.com/cotton/new-focus-cotton-webinar-looks-southeast-irrigation-foliar-diseases <div class="node-body article-body">This month, the ‘Focus on Cotton’ webcast resource, developed by Cotton Incorporated and the Plant Management Network, offers useful information on cotton protection and irrigation management for the Southeast.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://southeastfarmpress.com/cotton/new-focus-cotton-webinar-looks-southeast-irrigation-foliar-diseases" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://southeastfarmpress.com/cotton/new-focus-cotton-webinar-looks-southeast-irrigation-foliar-diseases#comments Cotton Management Cotton Irrigation Leaf Disease Wed, 23 Jul 2014 16:26:00 +0000 107881 at http://southeastfarmpress.com Deadline for NCGA National Corn Yield Contest Aug. 1 http://southeastfarmpress.com/grains/deadline-ncga-national-corn-yield-contest-aug-1 <div class="node-body article-body">The National Corn Growers Association reminds farmers that the Aug. 1 deadline for NCGA’s National Corn Yield Contest is fast approaching.
