632 Symposium --Nitrogen Management in Cotton Production/Div. A09 Business Meeting

Oral Session
A09 Professional Practitioners
The attention given cotton production and cotton area planted in the U.S. has diminished in recent years, mainly because of the biofuels frenzy. Nevertheless, cotton continues to be an important crop to producers across the “Cotton Belt”. Additionally, yield per unit area has dramatically increased in some areas in recent years as seed technology and management practices continue to improve. Effective N management is critical to the production of optimal cotton yields and quality. This session will explore fundamental and current N management issues in cotton production.
