The use of field scouting and insecticide use on Delta cotton farms was investigated. It was found that management and incremental value of scouting increased adoption of scouting. Scouting was not found to be a substitute for insecticide use on these farms. Scouting had a strong effect in increasing the value of the cotton produced.
