Recent outbreaks of Bacterial blight or Angular leaf spot of cotton, caused by Xanthomonas citri subsp. malvacearum, have been reported over the past several years. Management of Bacterial blight is achieved mostly through the use of resistant varieties; however, many commercially available varieties are susceptible to the disease. Several agronomic practices also impact disease development. Proper identification and management of this and other cotton diseases is required for producers to maximize production.
