Small grain cover crops offer opportunities for grazing but effects of cover crops on the following row crop are not well understood. Beginning in 1998, rye (Secale cereale L.) planted alternately each September in a ...
Relative contribution of insect and plant sugars to cotton fiber stickiness
(Texas Tech University, 2003-05)
Functional characteristics of genes involved in brassinosteroid signaling in cotton
(Texas Tech University, 2003-12)
Cotton fibers are highly elongated single celled trichomes that grow from the seed integument. Elongation of fiber cells begins almost after ovule fertilization and continues for approximately 20 days. In this study, I ...

Continuous canopy temperature as a tool for managing deficit irrigation
Deficit irrigation is becoming a trend in agricultural lands with reduced water. With the declining water resources comes renewed interest in deficit irrigation strategies and enhanced management capabilities to provide ...
Water use efficiency and irrigation response of cotton cultivars under sub-surface drip irrigation in West Texas
The High Plains Aquifer is the source of nearly all agriculture irrigation water in the Texas High Plains, and its resources are being depleted due to withdrawals that greatly exceed recharge. Decreasing water availability ...
Irrigation response in cotton to optimize yield, quality and profitability in the Texas high plains
An imperative issue facing production agriculture on the South Plains is water availability. Over time, water has been drawn out of the Ogallala Aquifer at a rate that exceeds its ability to recharge. Therefore, efficient ...
