Electronic download only. This publication aims to help producers make decisions on herbicide use for volunteer cotton. Volunteer cotton can compete with the crop and reduce yield. It also can make the boll weevil eradication program less successful—primarily in South and East Texas—because the plants can host boll weevils. Although complete control is a challenge, it can be accomplished by choosing the appropriate herbicides and applying them at the proper time. 16 pp., 5 tables By: Paul A. Baumann, Dale Mott, Dan D.
