This brief document is designed to provide cotton producers and researchers with estimates of planting and harvesting machine capacities. Different variables and scenarios are evaluated and explained to assist with determining the number of acres that can be planted and/or harvested in a given year.
While a standard nitrogen recommendation for cotton has been 50-55 lbs. N/480 lb. bale, small-seeded, modern cotton cultivars might require less N than did those previously grown. A common experiment was conducted in ten states for two years.

Access data from Texas A&M weather stations across the state. The site includes information on reference evapotranspiration (ET) and local crop coefficients, plus it makes historic weather data available.
The Oklahoma Mesonet is a collection of 120 weather stations that cover the state. The Mesonet website provides tools to help growers take advantage of the weather data, for example, by improving irrigation management and drift prevention.
Spread of a new race of the seed and soil-borne fungus that causes Fusarium Wilt poses a strategic threat to U. S. cotton. The bulletin describes how to identify the disease and recommends means to contain its local and long-range spread.
This is two-page producer handout (a condensed version of the full FOV4 bulletin) describes how to identify the FOV4 disease and recommends ways to contain its local and long-range spread.
This publication provides a review of the research literature related to carbon sequestration under different cotton tillage systems. For conventional tillage systems, little soil carbon was stored; however, with no tillage 430 pounds of carbon per acre were stored, and with a cover crop, up to 600 pounds per acre. This information is useful for understanding […]
This publication illustrates how to place soil water sensors and interpret the data in order to improve cotton irrigation management and achieve both higher water use efficiency and higher yields.
This website houses resources on integrated weed management for herbicide-resistant weeds. It is updated regularly by a team of weed scientists from 14 universities and the USDA Agricultural Research Service.
Access national daily, weekly and seasonal cotton quality reports, plus cotton prices, weekly market review and other reports.
