Impact of Seed Treatment with Systemic Insecticides on Cotton Leaf Curl Disease
Tariq Mehmood, Athar Nadeem and Merritt R Nelson

Abstract:
Field studies were conducted to assess the effect of seed dressing systemic insecticides on cotton leaf curl disease (CLCuD) and their impact on yield components. Spread of disease and severity was comparatively lower in treated plots than untreated control. Plants grew more vigorously in imidacloprid followed by thiamethoxam treatments. Seed treatment with imidacloprid proved to be the best. Average number of bolls per plant were 16 in imidacloprid treated plots followed by 12 in thiamethoxam treated plot and 10 in non-treated control. Other yield components were also more in treated plots than untreated control. The yield was estimated to be 80% more in imidacloprid treated plot and 18% in thiamethoxam treated plot over control.
