Physiological Effects on Cotton Plant Sown under Plastic Mulch
By Muhammad Naveed Arshad on Jul 31, 2018

WCRC WCRC2

ABSTRACT The physiology of the cotton plant was studied in cotton sown under plastic. This practice is widespread among cotton growers in the Guadalquivir River Valley (SW Spain). Field experiments were conducted in 1993, 1994 and 1995 at Alcalá del Rio (Seville). In one experiment, cotton was sown on two dates in March. This is very early and is...

Mechanized Picking of Cotton Cultivated in Narrow Rows in Greece
By Muhammad Naveed Arshad on Jul 31, 2018

WCRC WCRC2

ABSTRACT The early cotton picker, adjusted to pick at 1 metre spacing, imposed this spacing on the traditional cotton cultivation system. Subsequent experimental results proved the superiority of narrower row spacing in many cases. Accordingly, in the 1980’s, many farm machinery companies in the USA started to convert existing cotton pickers to pi...

Application of Soil Monitoring, Benchmarking and Crop Simulation in Commercial Dryland Cotton Management
By Muhammad Naveed Arshad on Jul 31, 2018

WCRC WCRC2

ABSTRACT Many agronomic decisions involve risk as many of the factors involved are unknown or uncertain (e.g. rainfall). History can often serve as our best guide to the potential risks and benefits of a particular strategy. The use of crop simulation models is a powerful, and often the only, way to address such issues. Participatory research appr...
