Response of Surface Drip Irrigated Cotton to Fertilizer Application
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractFertilizer nitrogen rates and the addition of phosphorus, potassium and zinc were studied in a drip irrigated field at Eloy. Response to nitrogen was found with the optimum rate being about 170 lbs/acre although higher rates tended to increase yields. Significant response to P and K were not found, but there appeared to be a response to zinc. Yields were below desired levels because of problems with obtaining a good stand and infestations of cotton rust and root rot.
