"Naturally, there is risk in planting late, but it is still possible to achieve acceptable yields (within 10 percent of optimum for the year), depending on timeliness of management and the weather that each year holds. Risks increase with each day you plant after the insurance cutoff date. The insurance cutoff dates are there for a reason, and these dates generally reflect and align with multi-year planting date research that Dr. Edmisten has conducted. We do not suggest nor guarantee that late-planted cotton will yield as good as cotton planted during the normal recommended planting window, however it is possible to achieve acceptable yields through June 5th or so in most years, depending on the year (weather during the summer and fall) and how timely a grower can be with management. Since planting on June 1st or beyond is not covered by insurance, we do not recommend growers to continue planting cotton beyond May 31st, however we will provide some tips that may help you if you do decide to continue planting."
