Bolls are opening up in Fresno County. The photo of the open boll was taken on Sunday Aug. 18 near the town of San Joaquin. This field was flowering toward the top of the plant with the lower first position bolls open.

Pest Control Advisors say whiteflies and aphids could cause sticky cotton, which can decrease quality. Regular field scouting and timely sprays are recommended.
