Effects of Secondary and Micronutrients on Cotton Production

N.W. Kinsey


Fertility levels are important factors in determining cotton yields. But more is required than just supplying enough N-P-K. Cotton production can be affected, either positively or negatively, by the levels of the various nutrients in the soil, whether too little or too much. Secondary nutrients, correctly supplied by limestone sources, and micronutrients properly applied for the cotton crop, are important to consider for top yields. Leaving these nutrients out of the picture can only increase the chances of production losses in the field.
