The cotton bollworm is a significant threat to cotton cultivation worldwide, including in Uzbekistan's Fergana province. This study aims to discover new ways to combat bollworm infestations and contribute to the global understanding of integrated pest management strategies. This research examines the effectiveness of an integrated protection system that aims to reduce reliance on chemical interventions and improve overall efficacy through a thorough analysis of existing literature and on-site observations. The findings highlight the complex life cycle of the bollworm across multiple generations, its harmful effects on various crops, and the need to implement artificial biological control methods and precise insecticide applications. The study emphasizes the importance of adopting internationally recognized integrated pest management practices to achieve sustainable and environmentally friendly pest control solutions. The findings highlight the importance of collaboration among researchers, cultivators, policymakers, and industry stakeholders, in addition to its scientific significance. This integrated approach enables the development and implementation of advanced control strategies that align with current demands. By combining various methodologies and incorporating the latest scientific advancements, this study provides a practical roadmap for effectively reducing bollworm infestations. Comprehensive control strategies not only protect agricultural productivity but also reduce environmental risks. This research aims to achieve a balance between protecting crops and maintaining ecological integrity, providing valuable guidance in the process.
