Cotton Blooming

Posted by romeethredge on June 27, 2014

We are seeing some cotton moving into the blooming stage now. Recent good heat has helped moved it along well. We need to have our sidedress nitrogen on before bloom.

Seeing some scattered problems with aphids. Cotton can stand a good many of them but we get concerned when we see clorosis and twisting in the growing point. This photo is from a small spot in a dryland field. We will likely soon see the beneficial fungus ( beneficial for us, harmful to the aphids) that takes them out pretty well.
