Determine response of pests to available control practices. Evaluate response of cotton to management practices such as planting date, fertility practices and plant growth control. Measure pest response to application of control measures. Develop elite cotton germplasm and measure response in state yield tests. Transfer genes for resistance to diseases, insects and nematode into Delta-type cotton using traditional and molecular-assisted practices. Test alternative means to control pests with tolerance to normal control practices.
