Cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) growth, development, and yield can be limited due to reniform nematode and bacterial blight infestation. Studies were conducted in 2016 and 2017 to evaluate the profitability of a soil fumigant application, seed treatments, and in-furrow nematicides to protect cotton from nematode infestation as well as inoculation of bacterial blight at various growth stages in cotton to determine effects on yield. Research was conducted by applying various combinations of nematicides to cottonseed at planting and a fumigant prior to planting. Bacterial blight was conducted by inoculated on cotton at multiple growth stages throughout the year. Based on the results of these studies, a seed treatment plus in-furrow application should be applied at planting in nematode infested fields to increase yield and economic returns in cotton. Bacterial blight infestation was greatest when inoculated at pinhead square in cotton.
