Cotton Disease and Nematode Management
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Cotton sales are important to the economies of many nations, including the United States. Sales can help balance trade with cotton-buying countries. Problems such as diseases can interfere with cotton production and can therefore upset the producing countries' economies. The situation is the same in Missouri. Although the effects of cotton diseases on the Missouri economy are not as dramatic as in some other states, crop damage due to severe disease can seriously affect an individual producer's profit. Fortunately, most cotton diseases can be managed. This guide should help producers to identify problems caused by cotton diseases and nematodes and to decide which management strategies to use.
