Estimate cotton yields by boll count

In the latest issue of Mississippi Crop Situation (Aug. 14, 2009), Darrin Dodds provides information for estimating cotton yields by counting bolls after warning that such counts “can often be misleading as there are a number of factors that can influence final yield.”

Also in this issue you find:

• Erick Larson discusses corn harvest losses and moisture dockage.

• Trey Koger provides information on harvest aids in soybeans.

• John Anderson and John Michael Riley take a look at the markets for Mid-South Crops.

You can also access past issues at Mississippi Crop Situation archives.
