THE CARBON FOOTPRINT AND BIO-FUEL POSSIBILITIES FOR TEXAS COTTON

Darren Hudson, Texas Tech University

From a U.S. national perspective, current studies indicated that cotton production has a carbon footprint that is comparable to other crops. The inclusion of biofuels production should enhance the overall carbon balance for cotton and place it in a more favorable position for green labeling claims, and better position cotton producers to benefit from any carbon trading or taxing schemes that may be adopted in the near future. Furthermore, this project will increase the depth and specific level of data for the Texas High Plains. This work also has involvement from USDA-Rural Development, USDA-ARS from September 2009 – December, 2012.
