Some interesting facts about cotton and its growth, acreage in the South, how growers are seeing some gaining trends in yield due to breeding were shared. At the Hilton Hotel in downtown College Station, Texas the Texas Plant Protection Association put on a great meeting for folks to hear some of the new breeding, weed control issues, disease and pest controls, climate outlook and water management concepts. Did you know that cotton likes to grow best at 79 degrees F.? We at Orthman offered a 30 minute presentation on the advantages of strip-till in irrigated corn and cotton production. Afterwards, good questions came fast and furious.
