Abstract:
A series of boll measurements were taken at two locations in 1994 on 5 different varieties in an attempt to develop a yield prediction model. Measurements were taken in strip plot variety trials at Maricopa Agricultural Center and Marana Agricultural Center over a period of approximately 2 months from peak bloom through cut-out. Measurements taken included boll weight, boll diameter, bolls/meter, plants/meter, and final yield from each specific measurement area. Stepwise linear regression resulted in a yield prediction model expressing yield as a function of heat units accumulated after planting, boll diameter or boll weight, and bolls/meter.
