Mechanical harvesting of 3 cotton cultivars in Ivory Coast



Mechanical harvesting of 3 cotton cultivars in Ivory Coast



Coton et Fibres Tropicales 30(4): 475-479



In a trial at Bouake, cotton (a) DP-16 (from USA, plant height 1.08 m), (b) 229-29 (Ivory Coast, 1.19 m) and (c) 444-2 (standard Ivory Coast cultivar, 1.33 m) were defoliated and picked by machine or hand. Seed-cotton yield averaged 1.48 t/ha; there were no differences between cultivars. Machine picking efficiency was lower (89%) in (b) than in (a) and (c) (93.3 and 94.1%, respectively).
