Cotton production today is not to be undertaken frivolously if one expects to profit by its production. If cotton production is to be sustainable and produced profitably, it is essential to be knowledgeable about the growth and development of the cotton plant and in the adaptation of cultivars to the region as well as the technology available. cotton physiology This Reference Book may be viewed or downloaded in its entirety or by chapter. The following table contains links to select parts of the book you wish to view or download. The cotton fibers are separated from their seeds using a cotton gin machine.

Cotton has a tap root system and roots go deeper into the soil for search of nutrients. Cotton Physiology Today is a newsletter that provides in-depth discussion of technical and production issues as the cotton growing season progresses.
