Lint Yield of Hill-Dropped and Drill-Planted Pima Cotton1
- D. L. Kittock2
Cotton (Gossypium sp.) growers in recent years have been changing from planting cotton by drill-planting and thinning to planting to a stand. Much planting to a stand is done by hill-dropping seed. This study was initiated to compare lint yield of ‘Pima S-4’ cotton (G. borbadense L.) when drill-planted and thinned and when hill-dropped at 23-cm spacing. There were three population levels, 1, 2 and 3 plants/hill, for hill-dropped and comparable plant populations for drill-planting and thinning. There were no significant diferences in lint yield between hill-dropping and drill-planting in 3 years.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
