Journal:
Cotton: A College of Agriculture Report
Abstract:
Lint yield from planting on 2 April averaged 406 pounds of lint/acre less than from the 23 April planting for the 12 varieties. After 23 April, lint yield decreased an average of 6 pounds of lint/day to 7 May. For the 7 May to 20 May period the daily decrease was 10 pounds/day and from 20 May to 7 June it was 23 pounds/day. Deltapine (DP) 775, DP 90, and DP 90Y had the highest lint yield for the first two plantings and the lowest lint yield for the last planting. Centennial, in contrast, had the lowest yield for the first three planting dates and the highest yield for the last planting date. This illustrates the importance of selecting a variety that is best adapted for the particular planting period.
