Be sure you are scouting your cotton for plant bugs. I came across a few fields that were at threshold and were treated. I cannot remember the last time we had to spray for plant bugs in Bulloch County, but I do know if has been a while. They are sporadic and there is no need to panic – just be sure you are looking at your cotton for this pest. Click HERE to refer to information about plant bugs that was sent out on June 23.
