Management for high Yields - Cotton

06 February, 2009

In more northern districts and through central cotton growing areas, crops are beginning to cut out and open bolls are now present in crops. Growers and consultants are now able to see with some surety what the likely yield potential of the cotton crop is for this season.

In recent seasons the CSD Extension and Development Team have analysed high yielding crops across the Australian cotton industry. This has suggested that the very high yields achieved in recent season have been the result of a combination of high boll loads (as a result of good fruit retention) and higher boll weights.
