Is it very high population of red cotton bug in your crop?
The incidence of this pest is generally started from the November-December which sucks the juice from the developing seed inside the boll. As a result, the weight of cotton seed is greatly decreased. This bug is being controlled when we are spraying the insecticides for the control of pink bollworm and other sucking pests. Only on too high population, spray fluvalinate 25 EC @ 5 ml per 10 lit of water.
