January - a critical time in crop development

05 January, 2018

January is the peak flowering period and one of the most critical months in terms of determining final yield and fibre quality of a cotton crop.

As we move into the second half of the season, the aim is to capitalise on good growing conditions so far. This season’s crop is on schedule and has not suffered the insect damage which characterised last season. The crop has good yield potential, but ensuring that the crop has minimal setbacks from now on is crucial in obtaining this yield potential.
