Knowing of the wide-spread trouble
that tin' Fungus Boll Uot of cotton Is
causing in the state wo have asked
"rofessor II. W. Barre of the Experi
ment Station Coi|is to give us the fol
ding article on the subject:
During the past few years cotton
nnthrncnoso has spread all over South
Carolina. It is now causing a great
annual loss to the cotton growers. I
have just returned from a trip through
several badly Infested sections of the
state and 11 ud that this disease seems
to be causing greater loss than ever
During the past two years we have
been conducting a careful investiga
tion of this disease and studying the
lifo history of the fungus which caus
es it. As n result of this investiga
tion Wo are now able |o control Iho
Anlhracnosc first appears on the
otitslde of the bull as a small dark to
purplish colored spot. This spot grad
ually increase:, in size until the entire
j boll Is affected. If such bolls bo out
open the inside jk, found to be discol
ored and rot! p.
We have f< yrTui in our investigations
here that tlye fungus which eases the
disease grows in the seed. Seed taken
from mature bolls which were slightly
diseased were found to have the llia
nients and spores of the fungus in
them, and where such seed were plant
ed diseased plants were found to de
velop from them. On such diseased
plants the majority of the bolls were
diseased. We also found that when
WO picked cotton from healthy stalks
and planted the seed from th< so on
land which had not been in cotton tin?
previous year we had no ailthracnose.
The Investigation further showed that
under ordinary conditions the fun
mis does not live in the old diseased |
bolls and stalks for more (ban one
year, All this shows, then, that by
it lug seed which are free from dis
oasc mid practicing a one year's ro
tation we can gel til of antltacnose.
This has been demonstrated In the
fields on the Experiment Station dur
ing the past two seasons and is being
further demonstrated on a number of
farms throughout the state this sea
Another Important fact brought out
in investigation is thai a great many
farmers are bringing the disease on
to their places in seed bought from
seed houses and seedmen. .Many of
the worst cases of nnthracriose wi re
brought about in this way. We would
advise that every planter secure his
seed from Iiis own farm. Either this
or buy from some one whom you know
does not have the disease on Iiis place.
Anthrnenose Is a bad disease but it
can 1.asily controlled by following
tho treatment outlined above. \Vo
trust that every planter in South Caro
lina will keep this in mind when he
goes to pick his cotton and when he
plans for his planting next season.
