BASF Rep Adam Hixson Says Cotton Crop Looks good And Remains Positive for Harvest
With some timely rains throughout late spring and early summer, BASF Technical Service Rep, Adam Hixson, says the cotton crop is looking good.

"The Crop looks really good right now. We really haven't had to irrigate too much, which has been a nice change from the past few years."

Hixson said right now said the cotton is starting to set bolls and finish up flowering. So as we get into this time of year, its time to think about Harvest. Producers have to focus on foliating and preparing the crop for a nice good harvest.

Something that can help with that is BASF's Sharpen herbicide, "Sharpen herbicide is a very effective broadleaf herbicide, and a lot of growers are familiar with using it."

Hixson says sharpen is speedy and effective for weed control, but this time of the year, he says its good to think of Sharpen as a harvest aid product.
