Post harvest crop management

10 Point Plan for irrigated cotton


Post crop control

12 volunteers b.jpg

Ensure your cotton 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, leading to carryover and resistance buildup.



For more information on ratoon and volunteer cotton control, download Bayer's Resistance Management Guide: Control of Volunteer and Ratoon Cotton and watch this video on controlling volunteer and ratoon cotton.

Conduct a pupae busting operation, if required under your Bollgard II® and/or Bollgard® 3 Resistance Management Plan (RMP). For more information visit the Bollgard 3 website.
