The article offers information on how to deal with damaged cotton stands in the U.S. Randy Boman, an agronomist with AgriLife Extension Service, says when poor seedling emerges and stand reductions result from low temperatures, excessive soil moisture and packing rains, re-plant decisions must be made. Moreover, plant-spacing uniformity is a critical consideration in replant decisions and the more uniform the plant spacing, the greater the yield.
