Abstract:
Five field experiments were conducted at three locations in 1991 in Arizona to evaluate the response of Upland and Pima cotton to dates of planting and dates of irrigation termination. Planting dates ranged from as early as 2 April in the Yuma Valley (150 ft. elevation) to 14 May at Marana (2,000 ft. elevation). Dates of irrigation termination ranged from 8 August in the Yuma Valley to 24 September at Maricopa. Planting date was commonly a significant effect in these experiments, particularly with Pima cotton. Irrigationtermination results over three locations and three seasons show increases of approximately 50 to 100 lbs. lint /acre by extending later irrigations.
