Kansas cotton co-op thrives. (Newsline).
Kansas is free of boll weevils and--even with prices at 30-year lows--1,000-pound-per- acre cotton harvests can generate more income than a 200-bushel-per-acre corn crop (a corn yield that is hard to sustain). Top cotton yields this year reached three bales--or about 1,500 pounds--per acre, Latham said, with 45,000 acres planted. Last year, when 40,000 acres were planted, the state generated $6 million in production value.
