The Calender might Say Go, But the Thermometer Says Wait
April 26, 2018
By the calendar, we are at the beginning of the 2018 cotton planting season, however, I don’t think there is anybody putting any seed in the ground yet.  There is a strong consensus that the temperatures are too cool for cotton.  That is not just in Virginia, but also across North Carolina and even some of the mid-South States as well.  Last year we certainly had some success planting in April, but arguably, it was not because it was April, rather it was because we were getting warm days and nights and fast seed germination.  Also, last year, it got really cold the first week of May, and the cotton that was planted around May 2 did not do as well.  Now that is all history and we are looking at a really cold Sunday coming up this weekend with a final cold night on Monday.  The green light certainly looks like May 1st for this season as the first 10 days of May are promising to remain warm with temperatures reaching the 80’s whenever the sun is shining.  Cotton planted next week will probably take more than a week to emerge, but probably less than 10 days.  Rainfall might be coming again around May 5th.  Winds are expected to remain below 10 mph through Wednesday May 2nd, but will be blowing by next Friday.
