Public Breeding Efforts in The Mid-South: Host Plant Resistance

Jack E. Jones


Cotton breeding research on host plant resistance to the Fusarium wilt-nematode disease complex, to root-knot and reniform nematodes and to key insect pests (bollworm-budworm, boll weevils, plant bugs), and on how open-canopy traits affected boll rot, earliness, insects and yield are reviewed and discussed, especially as it related to the Louisiana Agricultural Experiment Station and the time frame of 1950 to 1990.
