"Cotton Showers" Current Conditions, Field Surveys, and Growing Degree Days all part of this Edition of Cotton Comments

Thu, 23 Jul 2020 15:02:50 CDT

In the latest issue of the Cotton Comments, Jerry Goodson, Extension Assistant give us an update on the current crop. He writes, "Current Situation “Cotton showers” continue across the region. A term I learned from N.B Thomas Oklahoma State university first cotton specialist. The term means a rain can occur on one field and a mile away sun is shining. A very frustrating situation for the ones not receiving rainfall.

The fields that received rain are doing excellent with exceptional growth and fruit retention. Plant growth regulator (PGRS) applications are continuing across the state. Each field and variety needs to be evaluated separately. One again I urge to consult your seed representative for his/her advice on this matter. Little to no insect pressure has occurred so far this season. Please keep scouting fields however. Two different situation has occurred where a sporadic pest has appeared. Yellow stripe armyworms were discovered in one and a hatch of Beet armyworms was observed in another. After emergence scouting of the field must start and continue on a weekly basis until termination of the crop.
