Cotton Planting Condtions for Franklin, VA
Last Updated 5- 27-2016 @ 9:01am.
 Date Day High Low Rain Planting Days to Emerge
5-27 & 28 Friday & Sat mid - upper 80's 60's   Outstanding 5
5-29 Sun 79 64 1.0" Excellent  
5-30 Mon 84 64 0.1"    
5-31 to 6-3 Tues to Fri 80's mid-60's minimal Excellent fast
Looks like we are going to come out OK with the rain.  The weather models are coming together at around an inch today which is less than they though yesterday. 

Any June planting should be done with the earliest varieties in our lineup.  333, 312, 4747, 1614 should be the 'go to' varieties.  I expect these varieties to begin blooming about 50 days after planting when planted in June.  On top of that they need a good stand and 3 weeks of blooming to get a good yield. 

Replanting Decision:
The early planting dates will have more time for compensation of low stand so plant populations in the low 20K can be acceptable if: 
1.  average 1 plant per foot across a long area
2.  You can tolerate up to 10% of the stand having a 10' gap
3.  A 3 foot gap is not a gap.
4.  If you have long gaps on one row, but the row on either side is good, then 85 - 90% yield compesation is expected from the adjacent rows for the missing row.  (This is the reason that success with skip row cotton has occured)

Is it Just Mid-May or What? 
5-27-16
Going into Memorial Weekend, it seems more like mid-May to me as the most advanced cotton that was planted in April only has about a leaf and a half out.  The earliest cotton has shown quite a bit of thrips damage regardless of the planting treatment and I am pretty sure that most of it is being sprayed or is scheduled to be sprayed as soon as possible.  Probably the planting dates during the second week of May are the ones that have cotton that does not seem to have as much damage.  Generally, the seed treatments will hold a solid two weeks after planting and by the third week, I think they are finished making an Orthene treatment a top priority by 2.5 weeks after planting.  The cotton that is being planted this week and next week will probably be safe from thrips very quickly and may never need Orthene.  There is some tropical weather that could affect our work early next week, but hopefully it will not stop us for more than a day or two.  It looks like we might need another few days to finish planting into next week.  The early varieties we focus on should begin blooming between 45 & 52 days after planting which can produce from 4 to 5 weeks of effective blooming depending on the seasonal heat.
