The First 40 Days and Fruiting to Finish

This presentation reviews best management practices (BMPs) for getting cotton off to a good start and reaching the finish line in an economical and timely fashion. The first 40 days after planting is perhaps the most critical stage of the cotton crop. The crop’s yield potential is set during this period. The fruiting to finish period spans the remainder of the season and is important for preserving yield and quality potential.
