Cotton Squaring

Posted by romeethredge on June 7, 2013

Some of the oldest cotton is squaring now , see the square just above my thumb. Cotton still looks pretty ragged in most fields due to all the thrips pressure and cool early conditions.

Here below is some cotton planted after a good crop of wheat was harvested and the straw baled. We have less thrips problems with lots of cover like this.

We are thankful for the recent rains and dryland cotton looks a lot better. We are seeing things like this where some cotton had a little moisture to come up last week and it’s in the 1st true leaf stage and the rains this week brought up some more cotton. This will save some replanting. It’s kind of amazing that the seed didn’t rot if its neighbor had enough moisture to come up?
