The Agricultural and Environmental Research department at Cotton Incorporated provides research and technical services to cotton growers, ginners and their support industries. The department's objective is to improve the profitability of cotton through the creation and utilization of knowledge. It achieves this objective through outreach and research at leading Universities and other research facilities in a wide range of disciplines.
A vast range of grower controlled variables are studied in Cotton Incorporated sponsored projects.
The Cottonseed Research and Marketing Program strives to maximize cotton-grower profit from seed
Several cross-discipline technologies are evaluated from an engineering systems-based approach
Cotton is susceptible to a wide range of insect pests
All agricultural research conducted at Cotton Incorporated emphasizes profitability
Plant-parasitic nematodes cost cotton growers more, in chemical control expenses, direct damage through root feeding
Without weed control, a farmer might make a few bushels of corn or soybeans, but a producer could make no harvestable cotton
Financial support of basic and applied research continues with our overall aim to improve lint yield and fiber quality and stress tolerance.
