Cotton Tillage and Planting Guidelines
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Tillage operations performed prior to planting cotton should make a firm, well-drained seedbed that will provide a warm environment for seed germination and vigorous seedling growth. Since cotton is a semi-tropical, perennial plant, it grows very slowly early in the growing season compared to other Missouri crops such as corn and soybeans. This publication gives tilage and planting guidelines for cotton in order to help farmers provide a seedbed that will allow the young seedling to get off to the best start possible.
