Abstract

Disease is a significant cause of crop loss in all the world’s cotton growing areas although the components of the disease complex vary according to prevailing climate, soil type and varieties grown. Disease resistance forms the mainstay of integrated control strategies, combined with chemical control for nematodes and seed dressing for seedling disease control. Marker-assisted selection and other tools in biotechnology are beginning to impact on disease management and new varieties engineered for disease and nematode resistance will begin to be commercially available in the next 3 – 5 years. This Chapter presents a summary of changes in disease incidence and management since the early 1990s and, reviews current trends in cotton disease management and research.
