Target Spot in Cotton

Posted by romeethredge on July 31, 2015

We’re seeing a little Target spot, aka Corynespora in cotton. This is the leafspot that we sometimes spray for, it’s about the only one that responds to fungicide sprays.

I saw it in a lush field that is waist deep with thick foliage and well watered.

In talking with crop consultant Wes Briggs, he says he’s seen it at low levels in several fields, nothing bad.  Here are some photos I took of this disease.

Thomas County Agent, Andrew Sawyer has an excellent post concerning cotton spots at this link: Cotton Leaf Spots
