Concepts and Achievements in Cotton Disease Management

Kamal M. El-Zik


Many Diverse economic and societal pressures are stimulating a re-evaluation of today's agriculture. Growers across the cotton belt are facing intense economic pressures as prices for their products hold steady while costs of production increase. At the same time, growers and the general public are becoming increasingly concerned about environmental effects associated with crop production, particularly fertilizers and pesticides as they relate to such broad and diverse issues as food safety, pesticide resistance, surface and ground water contamination, and environmental pollution. The result is an increased interest in utilizing IPM concepts for optimizing pest control decisions.
