Evaluating Methanol Usage on Cotton

Thomas J. Gerik


The interest in using methanol-containing sprays on cotton began in October, 1992 with the publication of a report by Drs. Arthur Nonomura and Andrew Benson in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (1). They reported remarkable changes in the growth and water use of many crops, including cotton, when methanol-based solutions containing minerals, urea, and amino acids were applied to the foliage several times during the growing season.
