Short-Season Cotton Production in the Louisiana Delta

G.C. Goldman


Short season production techniques that have had a degree of success in western areas of the belt have not proved economically viable in our area. Yield loss is not acceptable. I am speaking of such practices as very early maturing varieties, smaller plants with less foliage, narrow rows stripper harvesting, etc. We have to take an approach better suited to our weather and growing conditions. Only in recent years has research developed the techniques that make such a system workable.
