Abstract:
Field studies were conducted at the Maricopa Agricultural Center to evaluate the effectiveness of selected defoliation treatments on Pima and upland cotton under warm and cool weather conditions. Air temperatures were high for tests conducted on 16 and 22 September and cool for tests conducted on 14 October. In September tests, Pima cotton was more susceptible to leaf desiccation after applications of defoliants than upland cotton. Single applications of Ginstar or Dropp + Def gave good defoliation in September tests. In October, Pima cotton was effectively defoliated by chemical treatments but a single application of defoliants did not provide acceptable defoliation of upland cotton.
