1) Follow Experimental Use Program for Corn once approved by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. 2) Treatment of cotton in several Texas areas and monitoring fungal communities on the treated cotton crop as well as on corn rotated to the cotton. 3) The potential importance of the S strain to aflatoxin contamination of corn in Texas will be assessed. 4) Influences of timing of application on efficacy of treatments will be sought. Producers will be asked about preferred application methods and timing and the practicality of atoxigenic strain use in the test areas will be assessed.
