Estimating Cotton Yield

Chipley, Florida, farm, harvest, October, Washington County, cotton, combine.

A lot of planning, preparation, and labor goes into cotton production. The ability to estimate yield and familiarity with factors that affect yield can help growers with crop management.

A recent EDIS publication, Estimating Cotton Yield, discusses a way to calculate reliable estimates of cotton yield using a few in-field measurements. The method allows growers to calculate returns on investment. The authors walk the reader through the steps of the field procedure and provide two calculations, a cotton lint yield estimation spreadsheet, and a step-by-step video.
