Subject: RE: Strip tilling cotton?


Texas Panhandle
There is really no reason to as cotton has some of the most aggressive roots out there and doesn't mind compaction at all. It really doesn't like a soft seed bed "here". Could be different for you.

We plant cotton into wheat stubble right behind the swather after wheatlage and have thot we could improve the stand with striptill. I have a 1tripper Orthman and it seemed the stand was no better maybe worse trying to deal with root stubble.

There is of course the fertilizer application advantage but we fertigate with pivots so the striptill wouldn't save us much. We would have been putting down mostly p and k. Soils sand to loam with PH 7.8 to 8.0....

We can even get a decent stand planting into the silage truck tracks which is kind of amazing to me. Max down pressure.
