Ecology of arthropods in Texas High Plains cotton and development of sampling plans for selected cotton pests
(Texas Tech University, 2004-08)
Source-sink relations in cotton: genetic and environmental affectors
(Texas Tech University, 2005-08)
Cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) production represents the largest crop enterprise in Texas with over 60% of the state’s cotton acreage on the High Plains around Lubbock. Large year-to-year and field-to-field variation exists ...
Weed management in Roundup Ready Flex cotton
The Texas High Plains continues to plant a large number of hectares to Roundup Ready cotton varieties because effective control of a wide range of annual and perennial weeds is achieved with glyphosate. The current Roundup ...
Optimal economic combination of irrigation technology and cotton varieties on the High Plains of Texas
Cotton is the leading agricultural crop in the Texas High Plains. Cotton producers have experienced steady to declining cotton prices coupled with increasing input costs resulting in tightening profit margins. Many new ...
The effects of cool night temperatures on respiration and growth of immature cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L. cv.Coker 312) leaves
(Texas Tech University, 1997-12)
The aim of this study was to determine the effects of cool night temperatures on respiration, its substrate, and growth of immature leaves of cotton. Plants grown at both 30/19 and 30/15° C (day/night) had fewer primary ...
Developmental responses of cotton genotypes to varying water application regimes
(Texas Tech University, 2004-05)
Effect of irrigation and tillage practices on cotton fleahopper Pseudatomoscelis seriatus (Reuter) and predator activity in the Texas Rolling Plains
(Texas Tech University, 2007-12)
Field studies were conducted at Munday, Knox Co. Texas, during the years 2003 to 2005 to evaluate the effects of irrigation and tillage system on cotton fleahopper (Pseudatomoscelis seriatus Reuter) seasonal activity in ...
Influence of plant spacing on arthropod population density and yield loss potential in cotton produced under different insecticide routines
(Texas Tech University, 1988-05)
Developmental regulation in cotton cell wall proteins under different thermal environments
(Texas Tech University, 1992-08)
Two cotton racestocks, T25 and T169, respond to drought stress differently. In the field, T25 leaves remain turgid whereas T169 leaves wilt under environmental stress. T25 is considered to be a drought tolerant cotton line, ...
Economic evaluation of an integrated cropping system with cotton
(Texas Tech University, 2005-12)
Cotton is the primary crop in the Southern High Plains of Texas. Increased irrigation of cotton has reduced the Ogallala aquifer water supplies. The reduced levels of the aquifer have led to an increased cost of producing ...
