​In the first of two presentations on agronomy and physiology at the 2023 Georgia Cotton Commission Annual Meeting, John Snider, University of Georgia Cotton Physiologist, presents findings and draws conclusions from research for which the objective was to assess biomass, nutrient uptake, and yield in cotton in response to irrigation, nitrogen application, and mepiquat chloride (MC) management strategy. (See the second presentation by Camp Hand, University of Georgia Extension Cotton Agronomist.)

About the Presenter

John Snider John Snider is an associate professor of crop physiology at the University of Georgia; his official appointment is 85% research and 15% teaching. The overarching research objective of the Cotton Physiology Lab is to utilize physiological principles to solve agronomic problems and improve the productivity, efficiency, and sustainability of cotton production in Georgia. Snider is particularly focused on characterizing physiological response to yield-limiting stresses, identifying management strategies that improve water use efficiency, and identifying traits associated with improvements in seedling vigor.
