Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In greenhouse and field studies, cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) flowers were inoculated with Aspergillus flavus at the involucral nectaries. Bolls developing from early-season flowers had significantly higher percentages of A. flavus-infected seed than did bolls from flowers formed later in the season. Seeds from bolls inoculated 2 weeks after anthesis had the same infection levels as those from flowers inoculated at anthesis. These results indicate that early-season flowers are predisposed to A. flavus infection and that the degree of susceptibility at anthesis is retained through early boll development.
