Abstract: Most, if not all, entomologists involved in the development of cotton insect management systems agree that an essent1al part of a successful Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program is the ava;lability of an eff1cac1ous material against a system's key pests. Certainly an app ropriate quest1on 1s this: What are th.e prospects for maintaining such compounds1 First, a little history: During the past three decades the resistance phenomenon has removed from our insecticide arsenal three classes of chem1cals for at least one key pest in the major crops system. This is a loss of an efficacious materials at an alarmi ng rate of one class of chemicals for each decade. It presently appears that the more recent group, the synthet1c pyrethroids, are facing the same demise.
