Managing Cotton After Florence

— Written By

First of all, we pray that everyone is safe from Hurricane Florence and that damage to homes and property are minimal to none. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone impacted by this storm, and please know that the NC State University Cotton Team is willing to help farmers in any way that we can.

With that said, we wanted to send out some information that may help growers in the weeks to come with regard to evaluating crop damage and management of the cotton crop for the remainder of the season. Preliminary reports indicate cotton crop damage ranging from catastrophic to very little, primarily depending on geography and intensity of hurricane wind and rain, but we will know more as time elapses.
