Abstract:
Three plant growth enhancement treatments were applied to April-planted DPL 555BR cotton on the morning of July 2, 2005. Plant parameter data were obtained during July, and yield and quality data were obtained at harvest in December. Usage of ChaperoneTM resulted in decreased potassium and phosphorus levels in petioles, as well as increased amounts of leaf chlorophyll. Treatments initially resulted in less fruiting structure/plant but had more than the untreated cotton at 26 days post treatment, with highest numbers per plant noted from the HappyGroTM + PhotoGro treatment. Each treatment resulted in less seed cotton and lint per acre than the untreated cotton. Less spotting associated with treated cotton increased the lint strength and increased trash levels. The AuxiGro® WP + CalMax® + Foliar Pride treatment resulted in the highest fiber strength per pound and lint value.
