I have found the first target spot this year in Berrien County.
This was not severe enough to spray for, but much of our cotton is beginning to canopy, especially in our irrigated fields.
Be on the lookout for this disease in your cotton. But remember this is a disease in which we can warrant a spray based on a “threshold,” so please contact me if you are undecided on whether to spray or not.
Below is a picture of what you need to look for. Notice the concentric rings that give the disease it’s name: target spot.
