Temperature
No Flags.  Watch Monday morning lows if you plan on planting this weekend.

Rain and Moisture:
Same pattern remains for this week of Rain at end of week, except forecasted amounts are less than an inch.

Johnny Say's
NEXT WEEK LOOKS AWSOME. Even though Monday will seem cool, seeds will not be exposed to any negative temperature that would cause issues and is still rated very good for planting.  So far, it is looking like we will not have any roller coaster temperatures that dump down in the low 40's, or that go above 90 on into the middle of May.  No huge Rain events are in the forecast currently.  It looks really good.  After last year, Maybe the Lord has pushed the 'easy button' for us, or at least the 'easier button'.

Seeding Rate:
Next week is shaping up to indicate we will have good emergence.  Standard seeding recommendation is 43,560 and is a good bit higher than we need for final stand to account for cold nights, packing rain, dampening off, imprecise planters, rough ground that sets up hard, poor cool germ on seed, and maybe a thick stand looks pretty in May.  However, thick cotton in August is undesirable. Check the precision of your planters and dig up some seed when you start on every row.  Keep in mind that small seed (1646) means you will have some doubles with standard vacuum settings.  I will send email on the specifics.

Matching Input Technology with Variety Technology, Improves the margin between expense and gross return as well as minimizing mistakes.
4-24-19
Matching pesticide technology and variety technology is becoming one of the main items to constantly think about and more importantly, keep good records on.  One way I have learned to think about it, so that I do not make a mistake when I am talking about technology to someone, is to consider each technology package as a separate enterprise.  So instead of talking about cotton as all being the same, I believe management solutions will greatly benefit by thinking of each of these technology packages as a different crop.  This is extremely important this year in regards to burndown strategies which have been delayed by weather.  Even as recent as last year, pretty much everybody just waited 3 weeks after burndown to plant to meet the planting interval required by 2,4-D.  However, now there is no longer a waiting period as long as we match up the appropriate herbicides with the variety technology.  (Just as a quick review, there is no waiting period for Enlist varieties when burning down with 2,4-D.  There is no waiting period for Xtend varieties when burning down with dicamba.  Most Stoneville varieties are not tolerant to the auxins and therefore have the normal three week waiting period following use of dicamba or 2,4-D.)  Technology differences are just as important for bollworm and nematodes this summer.  In the near future plant bugs and thrips will also have opportunities to be managed with genetics.
