Cotton at Oklahoma State University
Welcome to the Cotton section of the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences website. Major responsibilities of the Cotton Team are to develop and conduct extension and applied research programs to inform Oklahoma producers as to best management practices for cotton production. We conduct cotton variety performance and applied research trials as necessary; develop educational materials relating to the information; and disseminate it to growers and extension personnel by all appropriate means. An important function is to serve as an information and materials source for area agronomy agents and Extension personnel in the state. We work cooperatively with agronomists, area and county extension personnel, research scientists, growers, cotton organizations, processors, and industry representatives as necessary to carry out assigned duties and to solve cropping problems via applied research experiments and demonstrations. We also publish a newsletter entitled “Cotton Comments” that is generated at key times during the growing season.
