Title:
Defoliation of Pima and Upland Cotton at the Safford Agricultural Center, 2000
Author:
Clark, L. J.; Coleman, R. D.; Carpenter, E. W.

Publisher:

Journal:
Cotton: A College of Agriculture Report
Abstract:
Nine defoliation treatments based on defoliating agents that are in use in the area plus two additives (compounds A, B) were applied to Pima and Upland cotton to compare the treatment effects on percent leaf drop and yields. All of the treatments were beneficial to leaf drop compared to the untreated check with the Ginstar treatments generally performing better than the chlorate. One of the additives enhanced the early defoliation effectiveness of chlorate, the other additive enhanced the effectiveness of Ginstar throughout the defoliation process. More studies will be needed before recommendations can be made.
