Post crop control

10 Point Plan for irrigated cotton


Post crop control

12 volunteers b.jpg

Ensure your crop is destroyed post picking.

  • Cotton can regrow into ratoon plants post defoliation/picking and can act as:
    • A weed, which robs moisture and nutrients.
    • A bridge to host insect pests and diseases.
    • Resistance build up.



For more information on ratoon and volunteer cotton control, view Monsanto's Resistance Management: Control of volunteer and ratoon cotton biotech topic.

Conduct a pupae busting operation, if required under your Bollgard II® and/or Bollgard® 3 resistance management plan. For more information visit the Bollgard 3 website.
