Stale Seedbed Cotton Production on Clay and Silt Loams

Steve Stevens


Stale seedbed culture is an old concept used in the Horse and Mule day, on heavy soils. It is coming back in the 90's as a way to reduce risks and production costs. The basic concept: rehip the old bed in the fall and chemical burndown two to four weeks before knocking down the old bed and planting. This concept can be used on the whole farms and on all soil types.
