Cotton a Mixed Bag, some recovering,

Posted by romeethredge on June 10, 2011

Cotton is looking better this week but some replanting continues.  Below photo shows some weak cotton that is putting on new roots and hopefully is getting past some stress and will get on the right track. But not without lots of water to keep it going to this point after early season stress.

This cotton below is squaring well and looks good, you can see the speckling from residual herbicides to keep pigweed from emerging.

We got to keep it wet to keep it growing. Before bloom cotton will use about an inch of water a week.  Even then, you don’t want it to wilt before noon so more may be needed..
