GAPAC 

2006 Defoliation Project 

Home Page

 

The GAPAC Defoliation Demonstration treatments, sponsored by supporting companies, represent established and emerging defoliation chemistries and combinations.

 

These plots are located in production areas strategically located throughout the state.  This year, four consultants have each chosen a field of high yielding cotton to use for plots.

 

Ratings will be made at five to seven days after application and again at twelve to sixteen days after application. Each location will have a report generated for it, which will be shared with all of the companies that enter in the test.  A summary of all locations will be generated and a report given to all interested parties.  Results will be posted on the internet on a timely basis (within 48 hours after rating if possible).

 

We plan to have a field day at several of the locations, inviting consultants, growers, dealers, industry representatives, extension personnel and others.

2006 GAPAC COTTON DEFOLIATION PROJECT

 This year the Georgia Association of Professional Agricultural Consultants  is again conducting a Cotton Defoliation Project to give our members a hands-on evaluation of cotton defoliants.  We also plan to have the plots available for others in the cotton industry including growers, dealers, industry reps, extension personnel and others.  Our goal is to learn more about cotton defoliation in Georgia . 

 

We chose four locations across the state where we set up the same trial design on uniform, high-yield potential cotton.  We solicited support from industry, asking each company to enter treatments they would like to test in the trial.  After the treatments are submitted, each participating company will be provided with a list of all proposed treatments for review and editing.  The market price for each treatment will be included in the data summaries. 

 

Danny Bennett and Lee Dykes are responsible for arranging the treatments and making the applications.  They are also responsible for having all locations rated at five to seven days after application, and again at twelve to sixteen days after application. Data will be collected as follows:

 

1.     1.Percent Defoliation

2.     2. Percent Desiccation

3.     3. Percent Green Leaves

4.     4. General Rating (1 to 10 scale) Boll Opening

5.  Percent Regrowth Rating at 12 to 16 days

 

 Each location consists of one replication of each treatment.  Plots are five rows wide, by fifty feet long (minimum) with two buffer rows between each treatment.  The location was chosen by each consultant working with the project.  We tried to choose locations that have easy access for visiting.  Rainfall and temperature records will be maintained for each location.

 

Results from each location will be reported separately; data will be shared with all participants.   A data summary for all locations will be generated and a report given to all participating parties.  Results will be posted on the GAPAC website on a timely basis--within 48 hours after each rating or as data becomes available to the webmaster.

 

Each local consultant is in charge of arranging for tours or field days, at his discretion.
