Influence of tillage, seed quality, and fungicide seed treatments on cotton emergence and yield Academic Article uri icon


  • Evidence has shown that seedling disease can be higher under conservation tillage systems than conventional tillage systems. Cotton seedling emergence can be affected by seed quality and some seed treatment fungicides. However, interactions between these factors have not been studied. The impact of tillage systems on seedling emergence when seed quality varies, or with different seed treatments, is unknown. The question of whether use of new fungicides with moderate or low quality seed will adversely affect emergence is of great interest to producers.
