Cotton Seeding Disesase Management with Ridomil Gold

Albert B. Bassi, Jr., J. E. N. Goggin and A. H. Tally


Ridomil Gold is a new systemic phenylamide fungicide developed as a soil in-furrow treatment for cotton. Ridomil Gold is an isomer of Ridomil (metalaxyl). In-furrow fungicides in combination with seed treatments play a role in improving cotton seedling health and overall plant vigor. Ridomil Gold PC, applied in-furrow, in combination with Apron7 XL seed treatment will provide control of Pythium spp. and Rhizoctonia solani seedling diseases. These pathogens cause serious problems impacting seedling health, stand establishment, and yields. Cotton seedling disease control begins with an overall disease management plan which includes: good seed bed preparation, optimum planting dates, high quality seed, good variety selection, seed treatment, good field drainage, and use of an in-furrow fungicide at planting.
