The article reports on studies regarding cotton root rot which is said to be caused by pathogen, Phymatotrichopsis omnivora and is considered as a serious disease of cotton in Texas. It mentions that such studies were intended to develop field applicable and economically feasible methods to inhibit the disease. It presents several charts that depict the effects of the various methods used in the experiments that include biofumigation and timing of stem drenching.

    Plants and animals recognize microbial invaders by detecting pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) such as flagellin. However, the importance of flagellin perception for disease resistance has, until now, not been demonstrated. Here we show that treatment of plants with flg22, a peptide...
