IPM Oklahoma!

Cotton

Cotton is an important cash crop for Oklahoma producers. Most of Oklahoma's cotton is grown in the southwestern part of the state, although cotton can be grown as far north as Kay County, bordering Kansas. IPM programs have historically been important for the economical production of cotton, due to boll weevil and the bollworm/budworm complex. Cotton production practices have changed dramatically with the the eradication of boll weevil from Oklahoma through the Oklahoma boll weevil eradication program and with the development and adoption of transgenic cottons that contain  technologies for weed and insect control. Today, new pest management challenges await cotton producers, but fortunately IPM programs are flexible enough to meet those challenges.
