      Three field experiments were carried out in several representative cotton producing areas of Arizona to evaluate the effectiveness of a number of defoliation treatments on Upland cotton. These experiments were conducted at Coolidge, Marana, and Safford and utilized defoliation treatments designed for their potential effectiveness finder cooler weather conditions commonly experienced later in the defoliation season and at higher elevations. The treatments employed also offer potentials for use in close proximity to urban areas due to not having offensive odors associated with them. All treatments showed promise in terms of effectiveness and the results provide a basis for use recommendations in 1994 as well further points of study in future experiments.
