Evaluation of Insecticide Resistance in Tobacco Thrips Populations and Plant Density Effects on Thrips Injury to Cotton

Our departmental seminar speaker this week is Jessica Krob, who will be presenting her M.S. Proposal Seminar titled “Evaluation of Insecticide Resistance in Tobacco Thrips Populations and Plant Density Effects on Thrips Injury to Cotton”. Join us at 10:30 am EST/9:30 am CST on Friday, April 16, 2021, via the Zoom link information that is provided at the end of this message. Seminar Abstract: In Tennessee, thrips rank among the top four insect pests of cotton, which is one of the top three cash crops grown in the state. Thrips management is necessary because their feeding injury can lead to delayed maturity and yield loss to cotton. This research will investigate two recent observations made in small-plot field trials in Tennessee. The first observation is
