Cotton leafroll dwarf virus discovered in Central Texas


Folks,

Just a heads up---you must have read this article (link below) about new disease being found in Central Texas. With the higher than normal cotton aphid (disease vector) populations in spots across the Southern High Plains, we need to be wary of  potential virus transmission and symptoms. I hope we stay away from this thing but we may as well end up seeing it--who knows?

Look out for Elm Leaf Beetles

Folks, the elm leaf beetle has been very busy this summer on our trees.  If you have noted brown areas or dead looking leaves over the past few months, this is the culprit.  Please review our Texas A&M AgriLIfe Extension Elm Leaf Beetle sheet for control options.


 Let us know if you have any questions.
