Fungal Pathogens Affecting Cotton Production
Fungal pathogens are responsible for significant losses to production in all cotton growing regions of the world. These pathogens can also reduce fiber quality. In this session, scientists will provide information on unique disease problems occurring in different geographical regions and present the technology that is being employed to diminish these losses.
