Cotton – Midsouth/Delta – Bollworms Head North, More Cotton Moves Into Safety Zone – AgFax Aug 13, 2020
Open bolls are becoming a bit more obvious in the lower Midsouth. More cotton has cut out and moved past the point that pests matter.
Rice – Coastal harvest resumes, Midsouth edges towards combines cranking up. Nice yields expected.
The heaviest bollworm egg lay in several years has progressed through a significant portion of the region.
Yields remain promising in Texas and southwest Louisiana. Hurricane Hannah delivered plenty of rain to the coastal rice belt and pushed over some rice, but the storm could have been worse.
Bollworms have blown up on a wide basis and plant bugs remain active in parts of the region.
Yield reports from southwest Louisiana are exceptionally strong.
