<jats:p>Cotton production nationally is low due to various constraints, including pests. Two main pests commonly found in cotton plantation in rain fed fields are cotton leafhopper (Amrasca biguttula) and cotton bollworm (Helicoverpa armigera).

The experiment was conducted in farmers’ fields at Asembagus, East Java, between January and July 2012.
