Who Am I?

Cotton jassids are sap-sucking pests of cotton and several other host plants. Among the many species attacking cotton, Amrasca devastans is considered the most significant. Cotton jassids are mainly active during summertime. Adults have a green to pale-yellow color and tend to jump when feeling threatened, quickly fleeing the situation. Cotton jassids are most likely found on the underside of leaves. In high infestation levels, there is a reduction in plant growth, the leaves curl downwards, and the leaves tend to develop an overall pale color with red margins.

Caution and careful notice should be taken when using any plant protection products (insecticides, fungicides, and herbicides). It is the grower’s sole responsibility to keep track of the legal uses and permissions with respect to the laws in their country and destination markets. Always read the instructions written on labels, and in a case of contradiction, work in accordance to the product label. Keep in mind that information written on the label usually applies to local markets. Pest control products intended for organic farming are generally considered to be less effective in comparison to conventional products. When dealing with organic, biologic, and to some extent a small number of conventional chemical products, a complete eradication of a pest or disease will often require several iterations of a specific treatment or combination of treatments.
