Abstract

This overview of the 1995 production season is a compilation of information provided by extension agronomists and entomologists from across the Cotton Belt. With the exception of last year, producers can be pleased with recent trends in upland cotton yields in the US. However, whereas records for yield, production and price were set in 1994, the 1995 season was disappointing. Yields for 1995 look slightly better when compared with five-year yield averages for each of the cotton producing states. In spite of an increase in acreage planted to cotton in all four regions, yields in terms of pounds of lint produced per acre decreased. Production, as total bales produced, also decreased across the belt with the exception of the Southeast where a resounding 59% increase in acreage compensated for the decreased yields also experienced in that region.
