    1. 2014 Tift County Melon Update Intercropping Herbicide update

    2. Cantaloupe-Cotton Intercropping

    3. Watermelon-Cotton Intercropping

    4. *Monoculture of each crop included for comparison.

    5. Cantaloupe Cotton Peanut Soybean 30 days after transplant

    6. Watermelon Cotton Peanut Soybean 30 days after transplant

    7. Squash Cotton Peanut Soybean 30 days after transplant

    8. Conclusions

    9. Cotton Yield 1,215 lbs/A (a) 1,135 lbs/A (a) 1,325 lbs/A (a) *Monoculture yield=1,125 lbs/A (a)

    10. Peanut Yield 5,530 lbs/A (a) 5,515 lbs/A (a) 5,575 lbs/A (a) *Monoculture yield=5,155 lbs/A (a) .

    11. Soybean Yield 28 bu/A (b) 66 bu/A (a) 59 bu/A (a) *Monoculture yield=68 bu/A (a)

    12. Intercropping Cucurbits with Cotton

    13. Cotton Tolerance to Sonalan/Curbit good tolerance BUT no label for cotton

    14. TREFLAN 4-D LABEL (GA ONLY) – Intercropping Cucurbits with Cotton • Apply with burndown over mulch (prior to • punching holes). • A single 0.5” rain/irrigation to wash mulch and to active herbicide within 24 hr. • Apply 1 to 2 pts depending on soil type. • Wait at least 1 d prior to transplanting. • Can also apply PRE to cotton (directed to melons)……don’t exceed max use rate.

    15. Treflan HFP Labeled for cotton. Melon label: Apply Treflan as direct spray to soil between rows after 3 to 4 leaves. (Rates from 1-2 pts)

    16. Treflan HFP Treflan band after cotton Gramoxone + Treflan Plow Wash mulch

    17. Sandea Watermelon: row middle Cantaloupe: topical No cotton label!!!!

    18. Sandea *Consistent cotton stunting 10-20%, if planting without tillage in 14 to 21 days. *Spot spray for nutsedge? *Cultivation (tillage will reduce injury).

    19. Sinbar Watermelon: great tool Cantaloupe: bad idea Cotton: disaster

    20. Sinbar Injury

    21. Reflex Watermelon Preplant: great tool Cantaloupe Anytime: bad idea Cotton Preplant: great tool

    22. 2014 New Labels-Reflex Watermelon Bareground seed: 10 to 12 oz/A PRE Bareground transplant: A. Prepare land; B. Apply 10-12 oz Reflex C. Irrigate D. Punch hole and transplant Not Labeled

    23. 2014 New Labels-Reflex • Watermelon • Mulch Seed or transplant: • May apply over mulch; must wash ½ inch; 10-12 oz/A Not Labeled

    24. Treflan HFP – Watermelon Intercrop Treflan band after cotton Gramoxone+ Treflan + Reflex Plow Wash mulch

    25. 2014 New Labels-Reflex • Watermelon • Mulch Seed or transplant: • May apply over mulch; must wash ½ inch; 10-12 oz/A • Can apply under mulch if not disturbed when laying mulch at 10 to 12 oz/A. • Row middles 16 oz/A Not Labeled

    26. REFLEX UNDER MULCH 50-70% yellow nutsedge under mulch control, excellent Pigweed control Spray after laying drip tape

    27. REFLEX PREPLANT ON YELLOW NUTSEDGE

    28. Cantaloupe Response to Reflex?

    29. No Reflex Reflex 1 pt/A applied 205 days before transplanting

    30. 2014 New Labels-Dual Magnum Watermelon and Cantaloupe - Row middle bareground: 8 to 12 oz/A - Row middle mulch: 12 to 16 oz/A - Do not apply topically - Do not broadcast over mulch

    31. Mulched watermelon injury to Dual Magnum applied post-transplant on mulch. TyTy, 2010. % 50 a 40 b 16 c 8 d 8 oz 24 oz 12 oz 36 oz

    32. FOR WEED CONTROL METAM SODIUM (Vapam, others) STILL BEST OPTION UNDER MULCH
