    To the question "Can nutrition affect earliness?" the answer must be a definite Wes". Further, it will be just as important a factor as irrigation or pest management. Correct nutrition will form the basis of any attempt ...

    Pest management is only one link in the cotton management chain. To produce an early crop it is essential that all links in that chain be securely welded together.
