Narrow Row Cotton Production in VicksbergKnowles, Tim C.; Cramer, Roc; Silvertooth, Jeff (College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 1999)Deltapine 458B/RR, Deltapine 5415RR, Deltapine 20B, and Deltapine 20 cotton varieties were planted on June 5 into narrow 15 inch wide rows. Populations ranged from 80,000 to 100,000 plants per acre. Seed cotton was stripper harvested on December 17. Although lint yields were somewhat low (1- 2 bale/acre) for this late planted cotton, we learned several important practices for effective narrow row cotton production systems, based on our first years experience in western Arizona.
