MetadataShow full item record
AbstractA single field experiment was conducted in 1993 at Marana, Arizona (2,000 ft. elevation) to evaluate the response of three Upland cotton varieties to three dates of planting. Planting dates ranged from as early as 6 April to 11 May. Planting date was a significant effect for all varieties and revealed a substantial drop in yield with delays past 20 April in 1993, which corresponded to 568 heat units (HU, 86/55 °F thresholds) accumulated since 1 January.
