ABSTRACT
The article examines the application of the fungicide flutriafol to minimize root rots at cotton fields in San Angelo, Texas. Integrated pest management (IPm) specialist Rick Minzenmayer and Extension plant pathologist Tom Isakeit discovered that the fungicide which was formerly labeled only for soybeans and apples also controls the fungus that causes root rots in cotton plants. David Drake notes that the yields of cotton fields with the fungicide treatment gains 500-pound per acre harvest.
