Field Comparison of Various Plant Growth Enhancement Products on DPL 449BR Cotton, 2005
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractThree plant growth enhancement chemistries (AuxiGro®, ChaperoneTM, HappyGroTM) were evaluated on DPL 449BR cotton during the summer of 2005, Application were made during mid-July to late planted cotton to evaluate and compare effects of these products on cotton growing under severe heat and growth stress to determine if such chemistries could overcome this stress. Two foliar fertilizers were included with two formulations of AuxiGro® to determine if differences associated with these treatments existed. Usage of HappyGroTM = PhotoGroTM resulted in the most fruiting structures/plant while treatments that included ChaperoneTM resulted in reduced numbers of structures when compared with the untreated check on August 24. Highest yields among products tested were noted for the formulations of AuxiGro® 518 which were slightly higher than the untreated check. Quality was improved in comparative formulations of AuxiGro® by inclusion of CalMax® + First Choice® Foliar Pride when compared with First Choice® Bollster.
