There are many reasons cotton leaves can become spotted or discolored, with each instance requiring a different management response.
A new webcast – “Identification and Management of Foliar Diseases of Cotton in the United States” – has been added to the Focus on Cotton online series from the Plant Management Network and Cotton Incorporated.
This 16-minute talk by Heather M. Kelly, Extension research plant pathologist at The University of Tennessee, provides information that helps cotton growers, consultants and other industry experts differentiate between nutrient deficiencies and foliar diseases, identify the seven most common foliar diseases in the U.S., and recognize when diseases and symptoms typically emerge.
This webcast is part of the Focus on Cotton series made available by the Plant Management Network and Cotton Incorporated. The Focus on Cotton series contains more than 40 webcasts on various aspects of cotton crop management, including agronomic practices, crop protection and ag engineering. The presentations are accessible online at any time.
The resource also features a newly improved Cotton Extension Search tool, where users can conveniently search for extension resources across all U.S. land-grant universities serving cotton producers.
