Boosting Fiber Quality and Yields
The practice of growing cotton is always changing. Texas and Southwest growers know that their seed-selection strategies and crop management programs must constantly evolve, too. That’s why they’re always looking for best-in-class solutions that maximize yields, fiber quality and profits.
Texas and Southwest cotton growers must choose varieties that work best for their fields. Seeking out regional trial data, reviewing field history and talking to area experts can help them make an informed decision. It’s also important to diversify; it spreads the risk and allows growers to test new varieties. When a seed succeeds, it’s time to plant more.
Successful crop management in Texas and the Southwest starts with seeds that feature advanced genetics for disease resistance, premium fiber quality and better yield potential. It requires keeping an eye out for regional weed threats, building a long-term disease management program and following best practices for limiting pests. It means managing resistance – both in the field and in the future.
Selecting the right cottonseed and building a strong crop management program that limits pressure from weeds, disease and nematodes can help ensure Texas and Southwest growers achieve high yields and produce superior cotton.
The road from planting to defoliation is truly grueling. But you made it here again. It’s essential now to maintain focus on quality and yield. Here are three steps you can take to preserve fiber quality and yield.
