2020 Cotton Information is meant to help growers plan for the coming year and make management decisions based on the unique opportunities and challenges the year might bring.
This publication discusses the trends identified by research on the impacts of foliar fungicides and fertilizers on soybean yields in various environments across North Carolina.
Fertilizer burn can occur to the soybean seed from an in-furrow application and to the foliage from a foliar application. An in-furrow application can cause salt injury or ammonium toxicity to the soybean seed. Fertilizer is somewhat rarely applied to soybeans over-the-crop, however if it is done fertilizer burn can occur depending on source and concentration. This factsheet discusses the symptoms and management of fertilizer burn.
Sunscald is caused by bright sunlight on a wet leaf after exposure to high temperatures. Symptomology typically appears as rusty discoloration on the underside of leaves. This factsheet describes the symptoms and management of sunscald in soybean in North Carolina.
This factsheet discusses recognizing and treating soybeans that have been damaged by deer in North Carolina.
This factsheet discusses the effect on soybean fields after a hurricane and how to proceed with production after extended rain or a flood.
This publication discusses a study to compare five winter pea genotypes to crimson clover and hairy vetch for biomass production in mixture with various small grains.
Soil compaction, caused by field traffic and heavy machinery use, can be a significant issue for soybean production in North Carolina. This factsheet discusses the symptoms and management of soil compaction.
Cold damage in soybeans can emerge early or late in the season. This publication describes the symptoms and management of cold damage in soybeans in North Carolina.
This factsheet discusses how to mitigate hail damage in soybean production in North Carolina.
This publication discusses trends identified in how nonfoliar yield enhancement products affected soybean yield over the past five years across 15 locations in North Carolina.
This publication discusses the use of cereal rye as a cover crop in soybeans in cotton to determine the effects on weed suppression and soil moisture retention in relation to yields.
This publication discusses a study that sought to investigate alternatives to sole reliance on mechanical cultivation for weed control in organic cotton production, and to evaluate experimental varieties for use in organic cotton production.
Soil crusting is a problem that can occur after soybean planting before the soybeans have emerged. This factsheet discusses the symptoms and management of soil crusting in North Carolina soybean production.
This publication, chapter 13 of the 2020 Cotton Information handbook, covers the role of conservation tillage as it relates to cotton production.
A few weed species in North Carolina have become pervasive across the state and are frequently found in different crops. They form dense populations and reduce yields, making production more challenging. This publication discusses herbicide-resistant biotypes in agronomic and vegetable crops in North Carolina and reviews herbicide resistance management recommendations.
This publication describes the symptoms of a lightning strike in soybeans in North Carolina.
