ALL PLOTS ARE REPLICATED TWICE These Plots Include Tests of Application of Varied Amounts of Anhydrous Ammonia and other Fertilizers. These Plots Will Help You Provide Answers to the Following Questions: Is it better to apply Anhydrous Ammonia before or after planting? If you use heavy applications of Anhydrous Ammonia should you also use phosphate and potashT Can weeds and grass be kept under control without hand hoeing? Should cotton be thinned or left as planted? Should cotton be cultivated by conventional methods, or by using NO-HO to control grass and weeds? Can^ NO-HO be applied to cotton without injury? What methods of growing cotton will return the most profit dollars per acre? If you are interested in finding the answers to the above questions, we suggest that you be with us on August 8th and observe the experiment plots.
