Twice-monthly webcasts address timely cotton management issues. This is a collaborative project between Cotton Incorporated and the Plant Management Network.
This brief document is designed to provide cotton producers and researchers with estimates of planting and harvesting machine capacities. Different variables and scenarios are evaluated and explained to assist with determining the number of acres that can be planted and/or harvested in a given year.
While a standard nitrogen recommendation for cotton has been 50-55 lbs. N/480 lb. bale, small-seeded, modern cotton cultivars might require less N than did those previously grown. A common experiment was conducted in ten states for two years.
The Center currently has 19 fixed weather stations and 20 seasonal stations. The Center provides historical and up-to-date weather data and products to aid farmers in making agricultural decisions.
This resource for Arizona cotton producers includes links to current and past weather conditions for sites around the state, and crop reports.
This free mobile app was created at Clemson University to aid in the proper calibration of spraying equipment. Android and iOS versions are available.
This app was created by Clemson University to aid with quick, accurate calculations of product mixes to be applied with spraying equipment. Use in conjunction with the Sprayer Calibration App or by itself. Android and iOS versions are available.
The University of Missouri Extension Service developed this free irrigation phone app that uses the university’s network of electronic weather station around the state.
This publication from the University of Tennessee describes essential factors for effective irrigation decisions and describes the water balance method of keeping track of rainfall and irrigation. It also provides other supplemental irrigation resources.
Access data from Texas A&M weather stations across the state. The site includes information on reference evapotranspiration (ET) and local crop coefficients, plus it makes historic weather data available.
The Oklahoma Mesonet is a collection of 120 weather stations that cover the state. The Mesonet website provides tools to help growers take advantage of the weather data, for example, by improving irrigation management and drift prevention.
This collection of tools from the University of Missouri is designed to help growers increase irrigation water use efficiency. The links include investment cost guides, water use estimators and information on pond design.
