Local Planting Forecast
Cotton Planting Condtions for Franklin, VA
Last Updated 4-21-17 @ 11:07am.
 Date Day High Low Rain Planting Days to Emerge
4-22 Sat 71 59 0.35" Cool 9
4-23 Sun 62 53 0.5" Wet 8
4-24 Mon 63 56 0.6" Wet 7
4-25 Tues 67 55 0.2" Wet 6
4-26 Wed 79 60   Improving 5
4-27 Thur 87 65   Excellent 4
4-28 Fri 88 63   Excellent 5
A four to 5 day period of Rainfall developing late Friday night into early Saturday.  Total rainfall range from 1 to 2 inches.  Breezy NE winds.  Hot conditions expected mid-Week.  Drying time should not be long, as we remain in a slight deficit.  Expect fast emergence planting next week so be sure and get preemergence herbicides on within a couple of days of planting.

Favorable Conditions are expected to extend into early May with no risk of Chilling injury showing up in the current forecast.  However, sense we cannot do anything till the middle of next week, there is no need to hang our hat on this forcast.  If it holds up through the weekend, then we can gain confidence.

AT his point, it looks very favorable for late-April planting beginning the middle of next week.  That will give us over 5 weeks to plant cotton, and really almost 7 weeks with the first week of June included.

Soggy is a Word
4-25-17
Soggy is a word that could describe eastern North Carolina and Virginia right now.  And nobody is complaining.   A dry warm winter had us set up to be vulnerable to a dry planting season with little to no subsoil moisture reserves.  Now, the recent rainfall, along with a forecast for about 3 more chances of rain over the next couple of weeks – well it is pretty close to what we hope for during planting time.  Good moisture is not only the pleasant news from the forecast as there is no indication of any cool temperatures for a couple of weeks.  This would lead us to expect uniform stands, easy and relatively fast emergence - providing vigorous seedlings and good uptake of our plant protection in furrow materials.  This should indicate lower than average early thrips damage since we typically get a solid two weeks of protection from the seed treatments and up to 5 weeks from liquid in-furrow.  Still we do not know yet how big the thrips numbers could be, or if our populations are gaining resistance to these products.  The conditions are also favorable for weeds.  Be sure the resistant weeds do not get a head start on the cotton by starting clean.
