There are 15 Cotton Research Verification / Sustainability Program fields in 2019. This year there is a wide variety of growth stages across the state as some areas had trouble finding a dry window long enough to get field operations done and planters into the field. Cotton ranges from as high as NAWF 8.05 in later planted fields, to cutout in majority of the early planted fields in the verification program. Irrigation pumps will soon be cranked back up in several locations if an adequate rainfall is not received soon. A slight increase in boll shed has been seen in most verification fields.
