*Action is a new product not yet available for commercial application on cotton.
**Please note all Finish is at 6 pounds per gal. formulation
*** Finish @ 6 oz./ac. is the rate that was applied in Treatment #1; the rate should have been 21.3 oz./ac. Results of this treatment would have likely shown higher boll opening percentages with a higher rate of Finish.
****Approximate cost per acre; actual costs will vary.
