Cotton seed and seedling diseases and their control
"Seedling diseases cause serious losses to Missouri cotton each year. Failure to get a uniform stand of cotton is due largely to seedling diseases. Cold, wet soils are conducive to most seedling diseases. These conditions occur frequently in Missouri. Injuries caused by these diseases can result in stand losses that necessitate replanting. The U.S. Cotton Disease Council reports that seedling diseases cause average losses of 3 percent nationally. Farmers in southeast Missouri lose 5 percent annually to seedling disease."--First page.
