Nitrogen and Cultivar Effects on Yield and Earliness of Cotton on Clay Soils

N.R. Benson, E.D. Vories, F.M. Bourland and G. Palmer


Defining the maturity of cotton during the season could allow timely alterations in production practices and help reduce risks associated with a late crop. Standard measures of maturity require end-of-season harvest and are therefore not suitable as a tool to help adjust crop management. Recently developed cotton monitoring techniques using nodes above the uppermost first position white flower (NAWF) measurements have been shown to define the potential maturity of a crop during the season.
