Opitmized Timing of Cyclone Applications for Cotton Desiccation

Stephen P. Biles, J.T. Cothren


Variations in the performance of paraquat have been observed when it has been applied at different times of the day. A study was conducted to determine the optimal time of day to apply Cyclone® for cotton desiccation and the best rate of Cyclone® to be applied at this time. Treatments included an untreated check and Cyclone® applications of 4, 8, and 16 oz/A, each applied at three times (8 A.M., 1 P.M., and 6 P.M.). The best rate was the 16oz/A rate. The best time of application was the 6 P.M. timing. The results obtained from this study indicate that for best results, Cyclone® applications should be made in the evening with a rate of 16 oz/A.
