Abstract:
A series of boll measurements were taken at several locations across the state in 1995 in an attempt to develop a yield prediction model. Measurements were taken out of two strip plot variety trials at the University of Arizona Maricopa Agricultural Center and in the Coolidge area, and also out of two commercial fields in Buckeye and Paloma Ranch over a period of approximately 2 months from peak bloom through cut-out. Data analysis revealed a best fit model that included seedcotton yield as a function of boll count, boll size, boll diameter, and heat units accumulated after planting (HUAP). A series of open boll counts were also taken from over 120 experimental units across the state within one week of harvest. The data revealed strongest relationships between final open boll counts and yield.
