The article focuses on damage from bollworms which has decreased since the adoption of Bollgard cotton in North Carolina, while stink bug problems have increased. Jack Bacheler, North Carolina State University Extension entomologist, along with Extension agents, conducted a research from 1996-2003. Robeson County Extension Field Crops Agent Georgia Love prepared and presented the research at a recent field day. The boll damage survey comes from randomly sampling 1,252 producer fields over the eight-year period. The total boll damage during the eight-year period for Bollgard cotton was 4.63 percent, and for conventional, 6.54 percent.
