GAPAC 2002 Defoliation
Irrigated 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 locations planned throughout the state, and listed below.
This year, for the first time, we welcome Valent to the GAPAC Defoliation Demonstration Project.
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 will be made at six to eight days after treatment and again at ten to fourteen days after treatment. Data will be collected for each treatment. The market price for each treatment will be included in the data summaries.
October 13, 2002
All plots are four rows wide by 100 feet long minimum with a two row buffer, sprayed in 10 gallons of water per acre, 3 mph with TX4 hollow cone tips at 60 PSI.
