Thrips: The tiny bug that can be a huge problem

For many growers, reduced insect pressure tops the list of benefits to growing cotton in Kansas and Missouri and other parts of the northern Cotton Belt.

Unlike cotton patches to the south, the northern part of the Cotton Belt doesn't have the large threat of boll weevils, or pink bollworms, or even cotton fleahooper. And that helps growers out tremendously, especially with the shorter growing season earlier planted cotton faces.
