Target Spot in Cotton

Posted by romeethredge on July 30, 2014

We are seeing a little Target leaf spot in cotton. It doesn’t seem nearly as bad as it has been. Probably due to lots of sun and dry weather. If we get into a rainy, cloudy period it may worsen.  It often looks like a target with the concentric rings and is about marble sized. Here’s a photo of a Target Spot lesion I found this week.


Dr. Bob Kemerait, UGA Extension Scientist, has some good information about this disease as well as a risk index to help with spray decisions.
