Nematodes in the Mid-South

C. Overstreet


Root-knot and reniform nematodes are a widespread problem of cotton throughout the mid-South. It is extremely important to identify the type present in a management program. Management includes crop rotations, variety selection, cultural methods such as proper fertility and pH, cover crops, and nematicides. A combination of several of these management strategies may be necessary when high populations of either nematode are present.
