Research

Bronze wilt (BW) is a disorder of cotton that has reduced yields of susceptible cultivars, and may recur in future cultivar releases. Because BW may impair uptake or translocation of mineral nutrients, soil fertility may affect BW incidence or its impact on growth and development. A 3-year study was conducted to determine effects of N and K fertility and tillage on BW incidence and impact on growth and development of field-grown cotton.
