COTTON RESEARCH-EXTENSION REPORT 2013

The predominant defining factor describing the 2013 season was abnormally excessive season-long rainfall. Cotton in many areas struggled to get a good start. Substantial water logging occurred in many fields, which significantly delayed or prevented timely application of side-dressing fertilizers and/or layby herbicides.Harvest weather throughout the fall, although cooler than normal, was fairly cooperative. The most common challenges for growers included nematodes, target spot, and glyphosate-resistant pigweed.Despite these and other challenges, many parts of Georgia were blessed with better than expected yields, resulting in a statewide average yield of 831 lbs per acre.
