Light Land Management - Is there a 'light land' cotton variety?
2-26-2024
One of the key questions I have been getting since last fall is: “What cotton variety are we going to plant on light land?”  That question makes two assumptions:

  1. First, light land should be planted to cotton.
  2. Secondly, variety selection is the main component to successful cotton production
We need to back up and dig deeper into the issue and re-visit our strategies about light land.  

At this point, let me define what I mean by light land:
Everybody has light land but everybody’s light land is not unproductive.  The consensus definition of light land is deep, well drained sand with little organic matter, or loam.  It has low CEC, and clay deeper than 12-14 inches making it challenging at best and sometimes impossible for a root to reach.  It does not pack.  Surface dries quickly after rain or tillage. 
 
This is going to be a semi-interactive blog so as you get any ideas or questions after reading it, just text me or a phone call can help direct the conversation for everyone.  Over the next couple of weeks, I will be writing ideas that I have but also sharing some of the input I am getting.  This will be available in the ON LINE NEWSLETTER section of this web page available by logging into the site.
