Abstract:
A single field experiment was conducted at Marana, AZ in 1988 and 1999 to evaluate a scheduled (based upon stage of growth) versus a feedback approach (based upon growth parameters and crop conditions) to nitrogen (N) and mepiquat chloride (PixTM) applications on Upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.). The parameters used in the feedback applications for both N and Pix included fruit retention (FR) levels and height to node ratios (HNRs) with respect to established baselines for irrigated cotton grown in the desert Southwest. Treatments consisted of all combinations of feedback and scheduled applications of both N and Pix. In 1998, the highest lint yields occurred in the treatment consisting of Pix feedback and N feedback (treatment two) management. However, there were no significant differences (P≤0.05) among any of the treatments with respect to yield. In 1999, significant light yield increases (P<0.05) were found in the treatments consisting of Pix feedback and N feedback (treatment two), Pix scheduled and N scheduled (treatment three), and Pix scheduled and N scheduled (treatment five) management approaches.
