When Can I Start
4-17-2014

I am in no big hurry to start planting cotton in April as I see the best results from May planted cotton.  The other side of the coin is going to be a mild summer that delivers less heat units.  So as a strategy for Risk Management, I would personally plant a few acres in April to spread out the risk and have a shot of early picking knowing it probably will yield less than what I wait on...  So the next obvious question is WHEN?  Just for fun and because I am having an office day, I went ahead and started running the numbers I will use for the planting forecast that will begin this coming Monday.  Don't hold me too it right now, but it looks like the best three days for planting in April are actually coming next week.  I would say Wednesday, Thursday and Friday planted cotton will have the most vigor and best stand for what is otherwise a sometime troubling time for cotton.  Probably the main mistake would be to start this early and just keep right on planting, so the strongest comment I can make in this blog is just get a start in April but don't get in a hurry.  Otherwise, just wait til May.  Also, if you can plant all of it in a week or 10 days, I would rather wait for May.  

Be sure to Enjoy your Easter. Go to Church and celebrate.  On Monday I will get more official about expected  planting conditions.
