Code description: none=hairs appear to be absent from stems; few=stem hairs are at low frequency; moderate=stem hairs are at a regular and commonly seen density for most cotton cultivars; hairy=stem hair density is greater than that normally seen on most cotton cultivars; very hairy=highest density seen on stems; pilose=stem hairs are short and may lend a soft, velvety feel to leaf surfaces

FWDS - Estimation
Disease severty index of vascular root stain in a field infested with Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. vasinfectum race 4. Vascular Root Staining: 0 = no vascular root staining evident, 1 = light vascular root staining evident as spotty areas, 2 = more continuous than 1, but light colored staining covering an area between one quarter and one half of the stem cross-section, 3 = moderate brown/black staining evident in a band encircling most of the stem cross section, 4 = brown/black staining evident across most vascular tissue in stem cross section, and 5 = plant severely damaged or plant death with staining evident throughout a cross-section of root tissue
