Planting of the 2013 Oklahoma cotton crop is well underway. Rainfall or lack thereof is the predominate concern of many producers and the industry. Although many areas of the state have been blessed with abundant rainfall, we are still in the grips of Extreme to Exceptional Drought (D3 and D4 categories) in the historical cotton producing area of southwestern Oklahoma. Most growers in this area are watching the skies and forecasts and are hopeful that badly needed precipitation will soon arrive.
