Did somebody say Frost?
10-17-2014
Defoliation for Friday and Saturday is going to be as good as it gets for more than a week.  Sunday will remain cool and the coldest weather of the fall will be Sunday Night into Monday Morning with temperatures forecasted down into the upper 30's for most of the inland regions.  This will not be a big deal if it goes down like the current prediction calls for.  Usually, frost when temperatures are above freezing is similar to a high rate of Def and could stick a few leaves but no major damage should occur as many of these damaged leaves will fall off just like if they had been defoliated.  If the field gets Defoliated or preconditioned before the frost then it will reduce leaf stick.  Defoliating a week before a frost will completely eliminate concerns but even a couple of days before a frost helps.   I am quite sure we will not see any boll damage as long as temperatures stay above freezing.  Usually temperatures have to drop under 30 degrees for several hours to turn the top borderline bolls into ice cubes which can cause them to turn to mush. Bottom Line is that unless this thing gets a lot colder than they are predicting, we should not have any trouble.
