"This is just a reminder to check cotton for thrips. It’s a hard reminder when there is so much to be done, but early sprays are worth more. Don’t forget thrips injury is a function of plant growth and thrips dispersal. A slow growing plant and lots of thrips can mean lots of injury. Right now, even though growing conditions are improving, thrips are dispersing off maturing winter weeds and wheat into cotton."
