Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: A wide range of commercial varieties and experimental germplasm from seed companies have been screened for relative susceptibility to Fusarium oxysporum vasinfectum (race 4) in both naturally-infested grower field sites and artificially inoculated greenhouse evaluations. Evaluations have included a relatively wide range of Pima and Upland varieties from multiple companies over several years. The range of plant survival and indices of plant damage associated with the disease will be summarized for recent years.
