Abstract:
A single field experiment was conducted in 1989 on a grower cooperator field to evaluate the response of a medium maturity type Upland cotton (DPL-50) to three dates of irrigation termination. The crop was planted 20 April and managed uniformly in all respects until 2 August when the earliest irrigation termination treatment was imposed. The dates of the second and final irrigation terminations were 17 August and 1 September, respectively. With each subsequent irrigation, the respective plots received an additional six acre inches of water (approximately). Harvest results revealed no significant (P <0.05) differences in lint yield due to irrigation termination treatments. Overall mean lint yield for the experiment was 1,228 lbs. cotton lint/acre, the experimental coefficient of variation (CV) was 11% and the observed significance level (OSL) was 0.34.
