As mentioned last week, a few acres have been defoliated already; however, the vast majority likely will not be ready for at least 2 – 3 weeks.  In anticipation of large scale defoliation applications beginning soon, Mississippi State University,  in conjunction with the University of Arkansas and the University of Tennessee, will host a cotton defoliation update on August 26, 2011.

Presentations will begin at 9 a.m. on Friday, August 26th.  Presentations will be approximately 15 to 30 minutes in length and questions are welcomed from the audience.  Speakers and topics are as follows:

Dr. Chris Main – University of Tennessee:  Physiology of cotton defoliation

Dr. Darrin Dodds – Mississippi State University:  Timing of cotton defoliation

Dr. Daniel Reynolds – Mississippi State University:  Defoliation programs

Dr. Tom Barber – University of Arkansas:   Strengths and weaknesses of individual products

This update session will be available in Mississippi via interactive video conference.  Mississippi is very fortunate in that all 82 counties in the state have access to interactive video conference technology.  This technology is available at your local extension office.  If you would like to participate in the defoliation update through interactive video conference, please contact your local county director or area agronomist.

In addition to offering the defoliation update session through interactive video conference, it will also be offered through streaming video on the internet.  Viewing the update session in this manner allows you to do so from the comfort of your home or office; however, you will not have the ability to directly as questions to the speakers.  If you would like to view the defoliation update session through streaming video, you can do so through the web link below.

Valid:  mms://

The easiest way to get the correct address is to copy it from above and paste it into the address bar on your web browser.  If you get an error message saying page could not be displayed, check the web address to ensure that it is correct.  I have also noticed that the web browser I use will not allow me to delete the http:// portion of the address and proceed to the proper webpage.  It forced me to copy and paste the address above into the address line to work correctly.
