Only one partially sunny day since September 21st and between 3 and 5 inches of rain have put a hurting on our cotton crop. Boll rot is fairly prevalent across the area and we are now seeing seeds sprouting in open bolls.
At this stage there is really nothing that we can do except hope and pray that we see some sunny days. The weather is forecast to improve. Maybe we will be able to get this cotton defoliated and salvage what is left in the field.
