MetadataShow full item record
AbstractMessenger® was applied ar various growth stages of cotton to ascertain effects upon yield and quality. Plant mapping data indicated that treated cotton aborted lowest developing fruits when temperatures caused stress during experiment, untreated cotton did not. Lack of Messenger® after first bloom resulted in lower lint quality. Untreated cotton had highest yields and value/ acre from the Nov. 9 harvest date, although Messenger® applied at both first bloom and three weeks after first bloom had highest yields and value/acre when harvested on October 15.
