Effect of Nitrogen Fertilizer Application on Cotton Yields, Safford Agricultural Center
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractA soil depleted of nitrogen by cropping with Sudan grass and removing all the residues was planted to Upland (DP 90) and Pima (S-6) cotton. Nitrogen was added in the form of urea at three different stages of plant growth, applying a total of 0, 50 or 100 pounds of nitrogen. The yield of lint from DP 90 was increased where nitrogen was added; however, there were no differences in yield with the timing nor total amount of nitrogen added. In the case of S-6, fertilizer nitrogen did not increase yield.
