Abstract:
A field study was conducted in 2000 at the University of Arizona Marana Agricultural Center (1,974 ft. elevation) to evaluate the effects of three planting dates on yield and crop development of 13 varieties of upland cotton. Planting dates included 4 April, 21 April, and 9 May. The associated heat units accumulated since 1 January were 617, 877, and 1203 respectively (using 86/55 °F maximum/minimum thresholds respectively). Results indicate that there was a significant interaction between planting date and variety. Overall, lint yields significantly declined with later planting dates and significantly varied among varieties within each planting date.
