Abstract

Watermelon wilt, apparently a disease of very long standing in Iowa, probably was introduced into southeastern Iowa sometime previous to 1909. According to some of the men living in Muscatine County, there were approximately 8,000 acres of watermelons in this section in 1900. This area in 1930 had dwindled to 85{) acres, a reduction of nearly 90 percent, due to the watermelon wilt disease.
