Abstract:
Three field experiments were conducted in Avra Valley, Arizona, in 1986, to compare the lint quality of upland cotton fertilized with liquid sewage sludge with the lint quality of cotton fertilized with commercial inorganic fertilizer. Most lint quality components were similar for cotton fertilized with sewage sludge or inorganic nitrogen. Fertilization of cotton with sewage sludge tended to increase lint yield and decrease lint quality. Fertilization of cotton with sewage sludge increased vegetative growth and delayed lint maturity.
