abstract

Abstract Not Available – First paragraph follows:

Damping-off of cotton seedlings in southern California is caused by two fungi, Rhizoctonia solani and Pythium spp. Seed rot and seedling decline are particularly severe during cool, wet weather and when soil temperatures are below 60° F. Several new fungicides were tested against common, standard, commercial fungicides.
