Not all Boll Rots are caused by Bacterial Blight

Boll rot as a result of Fusarium (as indicated by the pink growth of fungal structures on the boll).

Boll rot appeared to be a common occurrence in numerous cotton fields at the end of the 2014 season. However, not all boll rot can be attributed to bacterial blight, especially in situations where the disease was not observed prior to harvest. Secondary fungal infection can ultimately obscure the observable boll symptoms associated with bacterial blight. Keep this in mind when scouting fields at the end of the season as bacterial blight boll lesions can oftentimes be obscured by secondary fungal invaders. . . . → Read More: Not all Boll Rots are caused by Bacterial Blight
