It’s time to start planning for a high-quality cotton harvest. Using the right cotton harvest aid in your fields can make a profitable difference this year.
Benefits of defoliation include:
- Increased exposure of bolls to sunlight, resulting in faster drying and opening
- Earlier start times for picking operations due to faster drying
- Reduced trash and green leaf stain, improved grades
- Reduced boll rot
