The Benefits of a Starter Fertilizer High in Phosphate That Can Be Sprayed on the Leaves of Seedling Cotton

James W. Chiles and J. Larry Chiles


Starter fertilizer low in chlorine and high in phosphates that can be sprayed on the leaves of the cotton plant after a stamd has been established can improve the root system, increase early fruiting and enhance the chance of maturing an early crop. Herbicide stunt and seedling disease are delaying the development of the cotton plant, which makes this program a necessity in modern-day cotton farming.
