Multidisciplinary Approaches to Studying Causes of Seed and Boll Damage
The focus of the symposium is to present international and interdisciplinary perspectives toward studying cotton damage resulting from insect activities and vectored microbial pathogens. Addressed vectors will range from pollinators to insects that are emerging as significant cotton pests. Highlighted microbial pathogens will include both fungal and recently identified bacterial examples. Attendees will be current on potential vectors and microbial agents that negatively impact seed and boll development.
