At least some cotton was picked in Mississippi and Tennessee before Hurricane Gordon touched land on the Gulf Coast.
More yield reports are filtering in from southwest Louisiana. See comments by Dustin Harrell and connect to his yield survey in our Links section.
Cotton continues to run noticeably ahead of schedule through much of the region, plus the crop looks quite promising.
Heading is moving along on a wider basis in the Midsouth. Our contacts in the Delta continue to talk about how fast the crop has progressed. Harvest approaches in Texas, Louisiana.
Cotton bloomed way ahead of the Fourth of July, thanks to plenty of heat, which also has pushed bollworm moths and egg laying.
If no widespread rain falls soon in Arkansas, farmers with limited pumping capacity will have to decide whether to put water on rice to maintain floods or irrigate soybeans.
Residual herbicides have browned up some cotton more than might be expected, two of our contacts noted this week. The effect has occurred wtith several herbicides and/or adjuvants.
