We have already begun to receive reports that whitefly counts are beginning to rise and applications are underway. The California Department of Food and Agriculture’s Pink Bollworm Program has released their Silverleaf Whitefly Report for the San Joaquin Valley from July 11, 2017 to August 11, 2017. As we continue through this growing season, we are urging folks to remember the efforts that were discussed at this year’s Sticky Cotton Summit. To be knowledgeable of the current pest pressures and knowing what tools and practices to implement early on will be the key to ensuring there is no sticky cotton in the San Joaquin Valley! We strongly encourage for you to utilize and share with others!
