Nice Weather Continues
10-27-2014
The recent pretty weather has been helpful for preparing the second half of our cotton crop for harvest.  Approximately half of our cotton needed the warm weather in early October to finish maturing.  It wasn’t exactly late cotton but it did need another week or 10 days to finish maturing in the top of the plant.  Based on this condition, the defoliants were not applied until the second half of October.  Most of the time it takes a couple of weeks after defoliation before the field is ready to pick.  In cooler conditions it takes longer.  With the current weather pattern, cotton bolls will continue to open nicely and the later cotton will be ready to pick soon.  There have been a number of observations that we have made.  One has been the value of preconditioning fields.  This practice involved an extra trip and allowed for faster picking and cleaner defoliation.  Bumping the Prep rate this year has also been very valuable.  Other observations are coming from variety comparisons, nitrogen management and other crop practices that will give us a lot to talk about this winter.  We have a long way to go so:
 
  Be sure to stay safe this harvest season
and remember the book about the Tortoise and the Hare.
