Summary

​Cotton producers make a continuing series of important management decisions to produce a crop. To carry the crop to a successful harvest, decisions on harvest aid chemicals and timing are critically important. This presentation is aimed to help consultants and cotton producers make the best decision for crop termination, with the awareness that changing weather and crop conditions make these decisions challenging. Good harvest aid decisions can help producers harvest the best possible crop yield and quality.
