Report of the Cottonseed Treatment Committee for 1995

C.S. Rothrock


The 1995 National Cottonseed Treatment Program evaluated cotton seedling survival for a number of fungicide seed treatment combinations over diverse environmental conditions and levels and types of cotton seedling pathogens. Sixteen fungicide seed treatments were nominated by chemical industry representatives for evaluation in the 1995 National Cottonseed Treatment Program. A standard fungicide treatment Vitavax-PCNB + Apron and a nontreated control were included to assess efficacy of the nominations and seedling disease pressure. In addition, the fungicide treatments Apron or PCNB were included to aid in determining the importance of Pythium spp. or Rhizoctonia solani, respectively. Disease ratings and pathogen isolations for seedlings and populations of selected soilborne fungi in soil also were included in the 1995 National Cottonseed Treatment Program by collecting seedlings and soil from the nontreated control plots at each location.
