A New System of Cotton Culture and Its Application

One of 1,702 pamphlets in the series: Farmers' bulletin (United States. Dept. of Agriculture) available on this site.

Description

"The way to secure an early short-season crop of cotton is to thin the plants later and leave them closer together in the rows than is now customary. Neither of these policies is advisable if used alone, but they give a real advantage when properly combined. Keeping the plants closer together during the early stages of growth restricts the formation of vegetative branches and induces an earlier development of fruiting branches. The new system is based on the principle of controlling the formation of the branches." -- title page
