Evaluation of Finish For Cotton Defoliation

K. M. Bloodworth and D. B. Reynolds


Field experiments were conducted in 1997 to evaluate defoliation, desiccation, boll opening, and regrowth inhibition with Finish (ethephon + cyclanalide) and Prep (ethephon) when applied alone or in combination with Folex (tributyl phosphorotrithioate) or Dropp (thidazuron). Finish and Prep were applied at a rate of 1.0 lb ai/ A, alone, tank mixed with Folex (0.25 lb ai/A) or Dropp (0.05 lb ai/A), or followed by Folex (0.25 lb ai/A). Treatments were arranged in a randomized complete block design with 4 replications. Applications were made with a high-cycle sprayer at a carrier volume of 15 gal/A.
