Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: This article summarizes the current situation with tarnished plant bugs in cotton. Resistance to the organophosphate insecticides appears to be increasing and many populations are becoming difficult to control. Topics addressed include rotation of insecticide classes during the season, cultural methods such as early maturity, thresholds, sampling, and area-wide management.
