*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.
