Argentina expands boll weevil controls

Argentine authorities are raising investment in pesticides and other control methods for cotton boll weevils ( Anthonomus grandis). The government has released Peso 20 million ($5.1 million) this month for a programme that began at the start of the year. The distribution of funds is to be handled by the boll weevil eradication programme, the Pnpepa. It intends to acquire more insecticides, pheromones and traps, and expand its team. The national animal and plant health inspection service, the Senasa, set regulatory controls, including the adoption of quarantine areas, last year ( Agrow No 582, p 23).
