Abstract:
The results of these experiments show that fertilizers may function in several ways in order to increase yields of cotton. The fertilizer may increase yields of cotton (1) by increasing the number of bolls per acre, (2) by increasing the number and size of bolls, and (3) by increasing the size of bolls and the percentage of lint per boll.
