A Variety of Cotton Farming Decision Aids
The decision aid section is great for grower level information. Depending on the decision aid utilized, you enter information about your specific farming operation and then you are provided a bottom line answer that allows you to play “what if” with certain technologies ranging from the value of your cotton in the CCC loan to irrigation, to yield monitors, to harvesters to government payments.
