Do not defoliate too early – ensure the crop and fibre is mature.

  • Your consultant can assist with the timing of the defoliation operation (4 NACB or 60% open).
  • Pick on time and without delay.

Do not pick if seed cotton moisture is greater than 12%. This can cause ginning fibre quality issues, which could lead to discount penalties
