ABSTRACT
The article reports on the threats of the cotton stalk destruction. David Costrum of the Texas Department of Agriculture notes that although cotton stalk destruction is a key element in eradicating boll weevil, yet the work becomes even harder for herbicide tolerant and non-commercial cotton plants. Among the underlying threats are the movement of weevils on equipment into zones that are functionally eradicated and the possibility to lose 49 million U.S. dollars from the Texas Legislature.
