Thrips tabaci Lind. as a seedling problem in Queensland cotton

Passlow, T. (1971) Thrips tabaci Lind. as a seedling problem in Queensland cotton. Queensland Journal of Agricultural and Animal Sciences, 28 (2/3). pp. 137-151.



Investigations on the pest status and population movements of Thrips tabaci in seedling cotton in southern Queensland showed that rapid and extreme fluctuations occurred in samples taken regularly during the growth of a number of sequential plantings. These variations were similar to prior trends in numbers of adult thrips as shown by sticky traps. Populations of thrips in cotton seedlings therefore were more related to
external breeding than to actual population build-up in the crop.
