About this Session
Cotton Disease Identification And Management
Presented by: Dr. Tom Allen, Associate Extension Research Professor, Plant Pathologist
Diagnosing important yield-limiting cotton diseases can be an important first step in determining the necessary management practices. Information on the diagnosis of important yield-limiting cotton diseases will be presented in addition to information regarding important management strategies that are commercially available. The presentation will also include information on some of the resurgent diseases occurring throughout the southeastern U.S. including areolate mildew and target spot.
Cotton Fungicide Seed Treatment Considerations
Presented by: Dr. Trey Price, Associate Professor & Agronomic Crop Pathology, LSU AgCenter
Cotton fungicide seed treatments are crucial for stand establishment in the mid-south. Most seed companies have a few fungicide seed treatment options usually with multiple modes-of-action. We will discuss seedling disease pathogens of concern, review all available commercial options, take a look back at historical data, and provide recommendations for economically sustainable seedling disease management during the upcoming season.
