Stoneville, Mississippi (August 25, 2018)--The 2018 Mid-South Cotton Defoliation Guide can be accessed using the link below. The Mid-South Cotton Defoliation Guide was compiled by Extension Specialists from throughout the Mid-South and is updated yearly.


 

 

Cotton defoliation applications started this past week and will likely continue for the next 4 6 weeks. Given the likelihood of changing environmental conditions over this time period as well as the fickle nature of cotton harvest aids in general, a continually evolving strategy to remove leaves and open bolls will be necessary. The 2018 Mid-South Cotton Defoliation Guide is designed to assist with this; however, prior knowledge/experience of field conditions and harvest aid performance should be factored into any decision.
