The Optimum Plant Growth Regulation System for Southeastern Cotton Producers, Year 2

O.J. Turner, IV


During the 1995 growing season, 42 professional cotton consultants in the Southeast took part in Year Two of Project 95, a program of sequential plant growth regulator applications and follow-up crop monitoring and plant measurements at Early Bloom and Preharvest. This System is designed to optimize plant growth and development, initiate and hold more fruiting sites, while maintaining proper Height to Node (H/N) Ratio with sufficient vigor to achieve high yields. This System of PGR IV and mepiquat chloride (Pix®; or Mepichlor®;) was compared to the local mepiquat chloride standard treatments as prescribed by the participating consultant.
