Director, Central Cotton Research Institute (CCRI) Multan, Dr Zahid Mahmood asked farmers to beware of pest attack in post-rain scenario pleading that survey report showed increase in infestation of different pests after recent rains. In case of observing 4-5 white flies or attack of Jassids, farmers should apply spray of suitable pesticide after consulting experts.
Pheromone traps should be installed to tackle boll worm and apply spray in case of witnessing 2-3 boll worms on a pheromone trap. Farmers should also remove weeds which serve as habitat for pests. The spray should be applied in accordance with the ETL of pest infestation following pest scouting.
