Effect of Rotation on Reniform Nematode Control in Cotton

Dru E. Rush, W.S. Gazaway, J.R. Akridge


Cotton rotations have long been known to work extremely well on several types of pests. However, no work had been completed in association with reniform nematodes. Five crops, including cotton were included in the rotation study. Baseline information from 1994 with nematicide vs. non-nematicide treated plots indicated a 262 pound yield increase where a nematicide was used. The 1995 rotation data resulted in yield increases of 51 pounds following corn, 58 pounds following cotton treated with a nematicide, 195 pounds following soybeans, and 262 pounds following grain sorghum. These yields were taken following two major hurricanes.
