Fruiting and Growth Characteristics of Cotton in Relation to Soil Moisture Tension1

Synopsis

Synopsis

Square initiation was reduced by increased tension limit and was directly related to plant height increase prior to 4 weeks past first bloom. Associated with the greater square production of treatments at low tension all season was a greater number of squares shed. Bloom production was also progressively reduced by increasing the tension limit. Prior to maximum fruit load square and post-bloom abscission relative to total fruit production was not significantly affected by tensions of 2.5 atmospheres.
