The Ogallala Aquifer is facing declining water levels. One option to reduce groundwater withdrawal for irrigation is the adoption of lower water use crops, such as cotton; however, temperature can be a limiting factor for cotton production in the Central and Northern High Plains of the aquifer. Based on heat unit availability, cotton is a viable alternative crop for all counties of the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles and for most of the counties of southwestern Kansas.
