Roundup Ready® cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) was introduced commercially in 1997 on over 800,000 acres. When surveyed in September, grower satisfaction with performance of the technology was high. A small percentage of growers reported concerns with misshapen bolls and boll shed. After extensive field investigations, it has been determined that misshapen bolls are not correlated to the Roundup Ready gene or applications of Roundup Ultra (glyphosate). Boll shed can be caused by a variety of factors including weather, Roundup Ultra application timing, placement and volume.
