Cotton leafroll dwarf virus discovered in Central Texas


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?
