Cotton Fertiliser Guide
Making the right fertiliser decisions for your cotton crop requires a good knowledge of your crop, soils and paddock history.
Fertiliser choices should be considered as part of a total crop management program, along with issues like insect and weed control, irrigation and cultivation strategies.
Soil testing is a good way to assess soil fertility and nutrient availability, to help give a clear picture of the nutrients needed to help meet your production goals. It can also be used to monitor soils over time.
Tissue testing can help match crop and nutrient needs during the season by measuring how well plants are taking up soil nutrients.
Genetically modified cotton in particular has high peak nutrient requirements and may need careful management particularly under stress conditions eg: cloudy, overcast, wet or cold weather.
