MetadataShow full item record
AbstractTwo soil amendments, Agriblend Plus and Superfloc A-836, were applied to cotton beds prior to planting at rates of 5, 10, 15 and 20 pounds per acre, incorporated and planted to short staple (DP 655BR) or long staple (HTO) cotton. The experimental plots were fertilized, irrigated and managed in a manner to produce optimal cotton yields. No statistically significant yield increases were seen from any of the treatments, even though a few interesting trends were observed. The report contains observations on plant mapping and lint quality data, in addition to yield data.
