Some Differences Showing Up
8-19

The region is setting up to have some differences based on rainfall in August.  I am not sure exactly where the break is but the cotton along the North Carolina/Virginia border has had more rainfall in August than the region north of highway 58.  This falls apart a little bit in Suffolk as some good rain has occurred along the Nansemond River all year and is similar to the Newsoms area back through Little Texas.  I see the effects of leaching on light soils more predominantly in the areas with the better rainfall which is not surprising.  At this point there is little to no value to remedial fertility inputs (foliar feeding) on this cotton.  In fact, we are hoping for all the cotton to start changing color in the coming weeks as it starts a natural cutout.  Dark green cotton is not desirable once bolls start to crack as a dense canopy along with humidity can increase hardlock risks.  The dry areas have maintained better color although there could be a fruiting gap as recent rainfall will likely hold some top crop on the plants which will require delayed defoliation to take advantage of the extra yield where it occurs. 
 
Insects
Bollworm moths remain low.  I have found about 50% of the young fields I have scouted at threshold mainly with worms under bloom tags and when it has been longer than 2 weeks since an insecticide application.  There continues to be egg laying so young fields that still have a lot of blooms, squares, & good color remain at some risk from infestation of stinkbugs as well as bollworm once 14 days have passed from the last spray.  Cutout and mature fields with few to no blooms are safe.  As long as cotton is blooming heavily with good green color and setting bolls, we consider it at risk during the whole month of August and needs to be monitored or protected.
