The high altitude and short growing season of the U.S. Southern High Plains (SHP) can reduce cotton lint yields and fiber quality. This study evaluated the effects of SHP cotton planting dates on lint yield and quality in 11 years of May- and June-planted irrigated variety trials. May planting increased average yields in 8 of 10 years that comparisons could be made, and improved average fiber micronaire in 7 of 11 years. These effects, and analysis of SHP temperature data, show that late-April to early-May planting with high-vigor seed may increase SHP lint yield and fiber quality. View this paper
