Its principles include utilizing an array of alternatives, rather than focusing on only one or two methods of pest ://   systems. Cotton requires a minimum tempera-ture of 60 degrees F to grow; however, tem-peratures around 90 degrees F are considered ideal for growth and lint production. Sunlight is necessary to drive the plant’s photosynthetic “factory” to produce sugars necessary for plant growth and fruit production (square to flower to boll). Integrated pest management is fast becoming accepted as the rubric describing a crop pro­ tection system that integrates methodologies across all crop protection dis­ ciplines in a fashion that is compatible with the crop production :// Integrated Pest Management Guidelines for Cotton Production in Australia Integrated Pest Management (IPM) involves using all means of managing pest populations with the aim of reducing insecticide use while maintaining profitability, yield and fibre ://
