High Plains cotton crop promising

West Texas cotton prospects look good, with a few exceptions where timely rains missed a field or two or where heavy rains washed out nutrients.

Average yield may not set any records, says National Cotton Council regional representative Rick King, of Lubbock, but abandonment has been extremely low. King recently conducted a short cotton tour in conjunction with the American Cotton Producers/Cotton Board Joint Summer meeting in Lubbock. Participants toured an oil mill, warehouse, and gin as well as two cotton farms.
