The Clayton Anderson Farms and Cromley Farms Cotton Nematode Trial results are included in the tables below. We generally see a decline in RKN populations where we plant RKN resistant varieties; thereby, providing lasting benefits for future cotton crops.
The Cromley Farms Trial had low RKN counts and minimal root gall damage. The Clayton Anderson Farms Trial had moderate/high RKN counts and considerable root gall damage.
Consider your options and select your management strategy in 2016 for dealing with plant-parasitic nematodes in fields that you have a problem by integration of resistant varieties, crop rotation and use of nematicides.
