Abstract/Summary Cotton yield and quality or whether the crop could be reliably sown and picked within the confines of the tropical dry season was unknown. Yields for March and April sowings and were high compared with Australian and international benchmarks. Lower temperatures and radiation during early flowering reduced crop growth rate However, assimilate supply was adequate due to early flowers having slower boll development, lower retention and smaller bolls. Increasing late season temperature and radiation permitted yield compensation from later pollinated flowers. Due to cool temperatures during fibre development fibre quality was marginal. Likely yields and quality were simulated using climatic records.
