Windblown Soil Abrasive Injury to Cotton Plants1

  1. D. V. Armbrust2

Abstract

Abstract

An experiment was established to study the resistance of an upland variety of cotton to soil abrasion and the recovery characteristics of damaged plants. An increase in the amount of soil striking a young cotton plant decreased the plant growth rate and yield, delayed first bloom, and increased the number of plants lost. A soil loss of less than 3.8 kg/ha (1.7 tons/acre) on 1- to 3-weekold cotton plants did not decrease yields.
