Results of these 1967 experiments indicate that the combination of toxaphene plus DDT is still the most effective and economical insecticide treatment for boll-worm control.
Assistance and cooperation in these experiments were obtained from the Kern County Agricultural Chemical Association, Kern County Land Company, A. Heimforth, Jay Dow, Inland Crop Dusters, Inc., Garriott Crop Dusting, and the basic manufacturers of the insecticidal compounds used.
