In late May, cotton gradually entered the growth period. In order to understand the growth of new cotton in various places in Hebei, the reporter made summary statistics of the local situation. The specific situation is as follows.
Last week, the Tangshan area in Hebei Province continued to have fine weather, with sufficient sunshine and a maximum temperature of 33 degrees Celsius. The wind was light, which is beneficial to the current growth of cotton seedlings. So far, the local new cotton is growing well, with the average plant height of cotton seedlings at 6-8 cm and 4-6 true leaves. Local cotton farmers said that the current occurrence of cotton seedling diseases and insect pests is mild, and cotton farmers selectively spray pesticides according to the severity of the diseases and insect pests. According to the weather forecast, it will still be mainly sunny in the near future, with an average maximum temperature of more than 30 degrees Celsius and moderate wind, which is beneficial to the growth of cotton seedlings.
In late May, sunny weather prevailed in Cangzhou, Hebei, which was conducive to the growth of cotton seedlings. At present, local cotton seedlings are growing well, and the seedling height is 10-12 centimeters.
At present, the height of cotton seedlings in Hengshui, Hebei Province is 7-9 cm, with 5-6 true leaves. At the same time last year, the height of cotton seedlings was generally 10-12 cm, with true leaves 8-9 pieces. A local cotton farmer said that the current growth of cotton seedlings is slightly slower than that of the same period last year. This is mainly due to the sudden low temperature and lack of sunshine during the germination period in early May after cotton sowing in late April. Cotton farmers can only replant and replant seedlings. Recently, there has been little rain in the area and it is close to a spring drought, which has further affected the growth of cotton seedlings.
According to the forecast of the meteorological department, the local maximum temperature will reach 36-37 degrees Celsius in the next seven days. There is still a lack of effective rainfall, and the initial growth of cotton seedlings faces challenges.
