Thu, 20 Jun 2019 17:05:34 CDT

Poor Planting Conditions Cause an Estimated Third to Half of Intended Cotton Acres in OK to Go Unplanted The latest issue of the Cotton Comments newsletter published by the OSU Southwest Oklahoma Research and Extension Center included details the current situation regarding Oklahoma's 2019 cotton crop. An excerpt of that newsletter detailing the current situation and current crop conditions is included below.


2019 Current Situation


"As of today June 20th the 2019 cotton crop has to be planted for Crop Insurance Purposes. A West Texas farmer told me once 'itís the longest day of the year can run two three days long.' An estimate of the cotton acres is a third to half the acres intended to be planted was not planted due to the poor planting conditions with the North Central and North East areas getting hit the hardest."


Crop Conditions


"This year cotton crop ranges from pinhead squaring to just planted. The plant stage determines what pest to concentrate on. The critical time for Thrips control is from emergence to 4th truleaf , please refer back to Cotton Comments Volume 9 edition 2 April 25, 2019 for Thrips control issues. If squaring is occurring Fleahopper Control is warranted. No additional pest have been reported.


"After emergence scouting of the field must start and continue on a weekly basis until termination of the crop."
