FOCUS ON COTTON
Shawn Butler considers the factors in deciding whether to accept or replant a cotton stand. Topics include parameters to consider when first evaluating an emerged cotton stand, factors in managing a replanted field, and future advances that have the potential to improve replant decision making and yield potential.

FOCUS ON CUCURBITS
Learning the basics of grafting methods and the keys for grafted seedling production will help growers and propagators be successful in producing plants and using them in the field. Learn more in this presentation by Chieri Kubota and Anthony Keinath.

FOCUS ON POTATO
Amy Charkowski presents the fundamentals of the biology and ecology of the bacterial pathogens that cause bacterial blackleg, soft rot, and stem rot in potato. She provides information on how to interfere with these diseases at planting, during the growing season, and at harvest.

FOCUS ON SOYBEAN
Laura Lindsey discusses how to identify yield-limiting factors in soybean production. Topics include soybean planting date, soil fertility, and the soybean cyst nematode, as well as recommendations for reducing the effects of yield-limiting factors and increasing soybean yield.

FOCUS ON TOMATO
Steve Weller addresses weed types, problem perennial weeds, and techniques for managing perennial weeds. He focuses on site preparation, elimination of perennial weeds before tomato crop planting, and methods to manage perennial weeds in the tomato crop.

EDITOR'S PICK
s
Phannareth et al. provide an unbiased assessment of protocols available from Oxford Nanopore Technologies, using these protocols to prepare RNA and DNA libraries from virus-infected plant material taken directly from a plant-pathogenic bacterium. The protocols enabled the scientists to access the entire genome of these organisms with only 1 hour of sequence data.
NOTABLE RESEARCH
Fusarium proliferatum is the main causal agent of garlic dry rot during the postharvest stage, but information on this fungus during the crop growth stage is lacking. Mondani et al. focus on the cropping season of garlic in the field, with the aim of clarifying the role of F. proliferatum in bulb infection as well as the impact of crop-growing conditions on pathogen-plant interaction.
