Texas Boll Weevil Eradication officials are asking cotton growers to contact their district office with information on when a field has been treated with any chemicals and what chemical was used.

Although fields that have been treated must be posted, contacting eradication personnel will help ensure that employees take the necessary precautions to protect their health and safety when working in these fields.

The Foundation also wants to avoid unnecessarily treating fields, as some of the pesticides growers use provide control of boll weevils.

For more information, growers may contact their local eradication office.
