Find the Best Nematode Management Tactic for Your Situation/Need With Latest ‘Focus on Cotton’ Webcast

March 26th, 2014

Memphis, TN - For producers and consultants in the Cotton Belt, nematode management can get complicated. Specific management options change for different nematode species and population densities, different yield goals, different cropping systems, and differing levels of soil variability. 

The latest free ‘Focus on Cotton’ webcast, published courtesy of Cotton Incorporated and the Plant Management Network, helps pair cotton growers’ situations and needs with the right nematode management practices. 

This webcast, titled “Management of Plant Parasitic Nematodes in Cotton” by Professor Terry Wheeler at Texas A&M University, was developed to help consultants, cotton producers, and other practitioners in the cotton growing regions of the U.S. where nematodes effect cotton production. 

By the end of this presentation, the practitioner should have a good understanding of what management options should be used for specific situations.
