Considerations for Cotton Planting and Preemergent Herbicides in Dry and Hot Weather

Comments from Camp Hand, Cotton Extension Agronomist

As many know, we are quickly losing moisture and this week temperatures are escalating and cloud cover will be minimal across Georgia. Many people remember what happened in late May of 2019, and this is shaping up to be a similar situation. Dr. Stanley Culpepper has asked me to post a couple of resources for you all to refer to as it relates to planting and herbicide injury in these situations. These can be found below. As always, your local UGA county extension agents and specialists are here to help.
