Agriculture Professionals admonished farmers to abolish cotton sticks from fields before 31st of Jan due to the hazards related to pink bollworm. Framers need to apply Chisel plough so that pink bollworms undergo diapause and their Pupae get killed.
Agriculture extension combined teams and pest warning wing were moving from village to village to notify farmers about the hazards linked to pink bollworm.
The bolls on these sticks carry pink bollworm undergoing diapause and consequently are destroyed. Those who want to keep cotton sticks as wood fuel should keep changing position of the sticks so that bollworm turn into Pupae and get killed.
Agriculture department pest warning wing was also installing scent traps at plenty of cotton sticks, at ginning factories and oil mills to keep an eye on pink bollworm.
