Twice-monthly webcasts address timely cotton management issues. This is a collaborative project between Cotton Incorporated and the Plant Management Network.
This publication provides a review of the research literature related to carbon sequestration under different cotton tillage systems. For conventional tillage systems, little soil carbon was stored; however, with no tillage 430 pounds of carbon per acre were stored, and with a cover crop, up to 600 pounds per acre. This information is useful for understanding […]
High-residue cover crops are a tool for addressing herbicide-resistant weeds, improving soil health and reducing labor costs. This 20-minute video provides practical guidance on how to manage such cover crops.
The “Cotton & Covers” video series follows the soil health journey of three cotton producers as they work to improve farm productivity.
A benefit to adding cover crops is the increase in water infiltration to the soil no matter if that water is coming from rainfall or irrigation. In this four minute video, Dr. Tyson Raper of the University of Tennessee discusses how cover crops can help make more water available during the season.
This 6 minute video provides information on how cover crops can be useful in controlling herbicide resistant weeds. Produced by the University of Tennessee in 2018.
