Cotton Planting Temperatures

As cotton planting picks up in the coastal bend area, a good thing to remember when planting cotton, from planting to emergence, is that it roughly is going to take about 60 growing degree units to get that plant up out of the ground. Some other considerations are making sure the soil temperature is 65 degrees by about midmorning and having a good five-day forecast that is favorable for positive heat unit accumulation and good growing degree units.
