Cotton Planting Condtions for Franklin, VA
Last Updated 5-23-2019 @ 8:30 am. 

 Date Day Temperatures Rain Planting
5-22 to 30 Thur to Thur 60's-90 0.01" to none Dry

Temperature
Mostly Above normal temperatures.  Fast Emergence and rapid developement
Rain and Moisture:
Dry conditions expected for next 7 days
Planting Depth if dry:
If good moisture is deep, you can go over an inch. Particularly with hill drop cotton. If you put it in moisture it will have a lot of vigor and can come up from 1.5 to 1.75" even if we get a third of an inch which is unlikely.  If it is dry at 1.5", then wait.
Late Planting / Replanting Window
Planting from May 26 to June 4 is our late planting window that holds expectation for full cotton yields using early maturing varieties.  historically this planting date has delivered more consistent yields.  It may not be the home run but its more like getting a base hit with typical reports ranging from 850 to 1100 pounds.  I am not aware of low yields or high yields when planting late.

Johnny's Blog
Surprise Rain was Scattered, but was Southern Fried Goodness.  
5-21-19
I’m excited about how this season is starting with the vigorous performance of the cotton that has germinated in this very warm soil.  Even though it is getting quite dry, we have managed to catch some scattered rain when there have been very low chances of it.  We have another week or so to go with 90-degree days and warm nights with almost no chance of rainfall, then June is supposed to bring us a break with higher chances of rain.  Planting continues to progress, and many will finish this week.  Deep planting is necessary in order to keep the seed in moisture.  It is an easier decision to make if you are dropping multiple seed per hill, but even single-spaced seed planted in moisture will have a lot of pushing power.  I believe there is a higher risk of planting shallow and moisture leaving the seed than planting deep, as long as the deep planting gets to the moisture.  The thrips pressure is high and the treatments are performing adequately.  If only using treated seed with nothing in furrow, I would encourage an aggressive approach of spraying 8 ounces of acephate at the first sign of a true leaf.  This is not a ‘scout-able situation’ and this early true leaf spray needs to be automatic.  When using in-furrow liquids, enhanced control is noticeable over seed treatments alone; however, acephate sprays are still necessary most of the time.  In-furrows typically add more time before acephate is required.
