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.
This is a late crop and certain pests are taking their time about coming to the table...at least for the moment.
A stretch of mostly dry weather has settled over the region and is helping bring along the crop. People do hope it doesn't remain too dry for too long.
Drier weather and more sunshine are helping move the crop along but an assortment of pests are waiting in the wings.
Sunshine and warmer temperatures are doing great things for the crop. Rain varies from none to heavy, with tropical storm Arthur dumping heavy amounts on the Carolinas.

Midsouth cotton continues to rebound after an unusually shaky start. A few more bolls are opening. Pest-wise, bollworms are a top concern. Three-gene cotton is holding up well despite massive moth flights in places. High plant bug populations also continue through much of the region.

Regulating growth – that’s a big focus across the region this week. Rains have kept sprayers out of the field when treatments are needed the most. Plants also are shedding squares after this prolonged stretch of rain and cloudy weather.
