Research Note on Effects of Diurnal Temperature Extremes on Cotton Yields at the University of Arizona Maricopa Agricultural Center
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractAn examination of the weather record for the University of Arizona Maricopa Agricultural Center revealed that short staple cotton yields were negatively affected by cool summers. Cool summers are here defined as June through August months with many days having cooler than average max temperatures for those months. No correlation to yield was found for nighttime temperature; nor was there a detectable effect of higher than average temperature affecting yields.
