Mitchell County Ag News
Here is the most recent cotton marketing news from UGA Extension Economist Dr. Don Shurley:
Cotton/Peanut Research Field Day set for Sept. 9, 2015, in Tifton, Georgia
The Georgia Cotton Commission, Georgia Peanut Commission and the University of Georgia Extension Cotton and Peanut Teams, will co-sponsor a joint research field day on Wednesday, Sept. 9, 2015, in Tifton, Georgia.
I am starting to see a fair amount of Target Spot in Mitchell County. Most of what I have seen is on older cotton, well past the 4th or 5th week of bloom. I have seen some on younger cotton between the 1st and 3rd week of bloom. This cotton will benefit from a fungicide application based on field history, irrigation, and growth stage.
