Economic Comparison of 30 and 38 Inch Row Spacing in No-Tillage Cotton

Chuck Danehower, Delton C. Gerloff, Estel H. Hudson


With the advancement in narrow-row technology, cotton producers in Tennessee are exploring the validity of changing from 38-inch row to 30-inch row production systems. Narrow-row production systems are more costly, thus making it necessary for an increase in production to offset that cost. Narrow row systems also require more intensive management than conventional row width systems. Before making a change in production systems, cotton producers should examine their individual situation through whole farm financial planning.
