    Default Cotton in the Fall

    I have a farmer who keeps his cotton going until the 1st frost when it dies. My question is as it gets into fall does the honey production continue on the cotton as the rain increases? Does it take hot temperatures to pull the nectar out of the cotton?

    Default Re: Cotton in the Fall

    In my area they defoliate before they pick the cotton, As the plant matures the flowers turn to bolls which becomes the cotton. So later on in the season we see alot less nectar as there is alot less flowers. Its my belief (here anyway) that as long as there are flowers on the plant than they are producing some what. However, less in the fall.
