This article reports on the ideal time for nematode sampling for Southeast cotton producers. Producers are reminded that harvest is the ideal time for nematode sampling in their fields. According to Bob Kemerait, University of Georgia Extension plant pathologist and Cliff Brewer of the University of Georgia Nematology Lab, populations of parasitic nematodes on cotton will be at their largest numbers at harvest. Specialists say that Growers who wish to identify fields where nematodes are adversely affecting their crop should pull nematode samples prior to mid-December and certainly before the first freeze of the season.
