Dr. Gaylon Morgan, AgriLife Extension cotton specialist, College Station, said recent rains that moved across the state brought beneficial moisture to cotton fields in some areas such as the High Plains and Rolling Plains. However, he added, prolonged wet conditions have been detrimental to cotton fields in the Upper Gulf Coast and Blacklands. Cotton seeds have begun sprouting in many fields within the Upper Gulf Coast and Blacklands regions of Texas. Prolonged rainy conditions have prevented farmers from harvesting cotton, which is leading to various problems that could effect the quality of cotton coming from around 375,000 acres within those regions.

The total impact on these estimated 375,000 acres will not be known until these fields are harvested, ginned and classed.” Quality will depend greatly on whether rains stop or continue, Morgan said. Producers had cotton fields with open bolls, and many had defoliated their fields before the rain came. Continuous rain over seven...
