This is a late crop and certain pests are taking their time about coming to the table...at least for the moment.
The Midsouth crop continues to run late but improved growing conditions have settled over the Delta states.

For cotton farmers, the 2020 season is starting out much like 2019 -- cold and wet with plenty of delays. Significant cotton planting in the Delta states probably won't start until May.
Midsouth cotton continues to rebound after an unusually shaky start. A few more bolls are opening. Pest-wise, bollworms are a top concern. Three-gene cotton is holding up well despite massive moth flights in places. High plant bug populations also continue through much of the region.
Much of the Midsouth cotton crop has hit bloom and the mood among people in the field has noticeably perked up in the past several weeks. Still, the season is largely out of sync. Normally by now, bollworms are turning up in cotton in the southern portion of our coverage area, but the expected flight hasn’t kicked into gear.
