Evaluation of the stalk puller as a tool for destruction of cotton stalks and management of the boll weevil in South Texas

, : Evaluation of the stalk puller as a tool for destruction of cotton stalks and management of the boll weevil in South Texas. 1994 Beltwide cotton conferences Volume 2 Proceedings of a conference held in San Diego, USA, 5-8 January 1994: 1137-1138

A system for removing cotton stalks from the dry hard clay soils along the Texas Gulf Coast, USA, at the level required to prevent regrowth and subsequent production of a food supply for the boll weevil (Anthonomus grandis Boheman) is described. The Sundance stalk puller consists of 2 large disc plough blades per row which act together to pull shredded stalks from the soil or cut them off below the cotyledon node.
