Production of high-quality cotton lint begins with variety selection, continues with attention to all cotton production practices, and ends with a well-planned and well-executed cotton harvest. As harvest time nears, critical crop management decisions include scheduling defoliation, defoliating effectively, and timing harvest to get the best lint quality and yield.
