Cotton ranges from dryland still waiting on a good rain shower to get a stand to 6 leaf cotton plants. Many area fields it is difficult to count number of leaves since the blow on Tuesday. It has been awhile since we have had a good general rain and it is now critical that we receive one in the next 10 days. The only bright spot, besides how peanuts look, is the fact that we are not experiencing much in the way of thrips pressure. As of scouting today I feel we still must scout for thrips as the health of most of our cotton acres is compromised from wind damage. Any additional stress and feeding to terminals would be a death nail.
