2013 Mid-South Cotton Defoliation Guide
During the 2011 growing season Chris Main, Bob Hayes, Tom Barber, Dan Reynolds, and myself put together a defoliation guide to cover Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi. The folks at LSU have a similar guide for cotton in that state that is available from the LSU AgCenter. Our guide has been updated for 2013 as is attached to this blog post. Keep in mind that this document should serve as a guide but use your knowledge of field and crop conditions and well as current and predicted environmental conditions when making final product and rate selections.
