Harvest in Full Swing
10-24-2014
The Cotton harvest, now in full swing, will move very quickly during the first half with the promise of favorable weather according to local weather forecast.  Any June planted or double cropped cotton that has not been defoliated should be sprayed immediately during this last warm spell in October.  We don’t always get this type of pretty weather in October but when we do, it can produce some amazing results.  Cotton has been getting ready to pick sometimes as quickly as 2 weeks after spraying but there are many examples of it taking longer.  I believe that most of the cotton that has been defoliated during the second half of October will require 3 weeks on the average and in some situations, it could take four weeks before this really late cotton is ready to pick.  Ultimately, there will be a reward for the wait this year as the top parts of the plants did get mature.  There will be about 8000 modules picked in the region in the next week or so, and the average gin processes about 50 per day.  You do the math but it looks like we will probably see a greater than average back up this year.   Another way of putting it is that it will take all of November to gin the cotton that gets picked this coming week.  Be sure to stay safe this harvest season and remember the book about the Tortoise and the Hare.
