A damaging population of variegated cutworm Peridroma saucia developed in one cotton Gossypium hirsutum crop in conservation tillage with crimson clover Trifolium incarnatum used as a cover crop. Tarnished plant bug Lygus lineoloris and bollworm-budworm Heliothis spp. populations found in cotton grown under conservation tillage with legume cover crops were related to the stressed condition of cotton. Yields were reduced by the clover cover crop; yields were not reduced by conservation tillage using no winter cover or rye Secale cereale as a cover.-from Authors
