Summary: This presentation will help consultants, growers, and other practitioners in the Southwest, Mid-South, and Southeast regions of the United States Cotton Belt to understand more about the effects of stress on cotton growth and yield. Specifically in this presentation, practitioners will learn: how early season disease and insect pressure can decrease plant growth; the effects of stress on cotton vegetative and reproductive growth; the effects of stress on distribution of bolls on plants; and the effects of stress on cotton fiber quality. By the end of this presentation, the practitioner should know more about general stress responses of cotton and which periods of growth are most susceptible to decreases on crop yield and quality.
