Treating cotton seed cuts losses to damping-off
Damping-off of cotton seedling, caused by the fungus Rhizoctonia soluni, can be a serious seedling disease in the interior valleys of southern California. Pythium spp. may cause some seed rot and seedling decline. Trials in previous years indicated combination treatments of two fungicides were superior to single fungicides for control. Trials were initiated in 1973 to compare new fungicide materials and combinations of older materials.
