Results from Boll Saver Tests

Michael J. Bader


Five experiments were conducted during the fall of 1994 to evaluate the effectiveness of a recent invention, Boll Saver, to lower cotton picker losses. Three different cotton pickers were used in the tests. Three replicated tests were conducted using the same picker and two were conducted using different picker heads. In the tests using the same picker head the Boll Saver lowered picking losses by 6.9, 35.5 and 30.9 pounds of seed cotton per acre. The Boll Saver reduced picker losses by 65.3 and 9.0 pounds of seed cotton per acre in tests using different picker heads.
