GAPAC 2001 Defoliation Project Home Page
The GAPAC Defoliation Demonstration treatments, sponsored by supporting companies, represent established and emerging defoliation chemistries and combinations. The project consists of results from five plots planned throughout the state, locations listed below.
These plots are located in production areas strategically located throughout the state. This year, five consultants have each chosen a field of high yielding cotton to use for plots.
Ratings made at six days and again twelve days after treatment are published at individual plot pages and consolidated ratings are available on the summary page.
October 12, 2001
All plots are four rows wide by 125 feet long with a two row buffer, sprayed in 10 gallons of water per acre, 3 mph with TX4 hollow cone tips at 57 PSI.
