Steps to Producing Cotton:  Steps to Producing Cotton By: Aric Cedillo Planting the cotton:  Planting the cotton 10 steps toward producing cotton Step One:  Step One Before planting the seed the field should be plowed. In doing this, it pulls up roots from beneath the ground which may be helpful to the growth of the cotton. Also make the rows that the cotton is planted in Step Two:  Step Two Next plant the seeds down in the ground. Plant on 7.5- to 10-inch rows at 150,000 seeds per acre — roughly 30 pounds. Your looking for about 120,000 plants to survive. Step Three:  Step Three At the cotyledon stage, check for thrips. Thrips -tiny, slender insects with fringed wings. A large number of thrips species are considered pests, because they feed on plants with commercial value. Quiz Time !:  Quiz Time ! Lets see who's been paying attention. Question One:  Question One What should you always do before planting your cotton seed? A) Dig a Hole B) Plow your field C) Check for thrips D) Make a labeled application of Roundup Return to the question:  Return to the question That’s incorrect because cotton is grown in rows not in holes. Next Question:  Next Question That’s Correct Because you need to have your rows ready for planting. Return to the Question:  Return to the Question That’s incorrect because that’s not needed until the third step . Return to the Question:  Return to the Question This answer choice is incorrect because this is done in the fourth stage. I got Stuck on this slide! What do I do now? Fix all slides Question Two:  Question Two What are thrips? A) A part of the plow that tears through the ground B) The part of the cotton boll that is hard C) Tiny slender insect with fringed wings D) Another name for the cotton boll Return to the Questions:  Return to the Questions This is incorrect because in step three it will tell you. Return to the Question!!:  Return to the Question!! This is incorrect because that part is called the Hull. Next Question:  Next Question This is correct because in the third step thrips are described. Same problem—what do I do now? Return to the Question:  Return to the Question This is incorrect because another name could be a Cotton Ball. Question Three:  Question Three About how many seeds need to be planted per acre? A) Almost 700,000 B) Exactly 500 C) Roughly 30,000 D) About 150,000 Return to the Question:  Return to the Question Return to the Question:  Return to the Question Return to the Main Menu:  Return to the Main Menu Return to the Question:  Return to the Question Step Four:  Step Four At the fifth-leaf stage, you can make another thrips treatment and our final over-the-top Roundup application. At that point, the crop is going into canopy closure. Step Five:  Step Five In this stage apply more bug treatments when appropriate. Step Six:  Step Six In mid-August, start looking for weeds that come out the top of the canopy. Let the weeds get 6 inches to a foot above the cotton canopy, then make a labeled application of Roundup. Quiz Time!:  Quiz Time! Lets See who been paying Attention Question One:  Question One At which Leaf stage Can you make another thrips Treatment if needed? A) Fourth B) Fifth C) Sixth D) Seventh Return to the Question!!:  Return to the Question!! The answer was wrong because in Step four it shows the correct answer choice. Next Slide!!:  Next Slide!! This answer choice is correct because is says in step four . Return to the Question!!:  Return to the Question!! This answer choice is incorrect because there is not a sixth leaf stage. Return to the Question!!:  Return to the Question!! This answer choice is incorrect because again there is no such leaf stage as the seventh leaf stage. Step Seven:  Step Seven Make a light defoliation treatment at 65 to 75 percent open bolls, just enough to set it up to take the desiccation treatment. Step Eight:  Step Eight Wait a week, then desiccate with paraquat. Sodium chlorate can be added to the mix. If it is close to frost, let the frost desiccate the crop. Step Nine:  Step Nine Harvest. Make sure the cotton stripper has the correct air flow design. Remember, too, that UNR cotton is generally 18 days earlier than wide-row cotton planted on the same day. Step Ten:  Step Ten Plant an cover crop, cover crops can improve spring planting. By definition, the cover crop does exactly as its name implies ­ and there couldn't be a more important function in today's complicated and sometimes unpredictable cotton production system. Quiz Time!!:  Quiz Time!! Lets See who been paying Attention Question 1:  Question 1 How many steps were there to producing cotton? A) Eight B) Nine C) Ten D) Eleven Return to the question :  Return to the question Return to the Question:  Return to the Question Next Question:  Next Question Return to the Question:  Return to the Question Question Two:  Question Two Why must you plant a cover crop after you harvest your cotton?
