      Brown, Paul; Soil, Water & Enviromental Science (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2008-02)
      Upland cotton is vulnerable to heat stress during the summer monsoon season in the low desert of Arizona. The primary impact of heat stress is a reduction in fruit retention which can reduce overall lint yields, delay crop maturity and reduce lint quality. This bulletin provides a general overview of cotton heat stress as it pertains to Arizona production systems.
