A Decision Tool to Determine The Optimal Level of Lint Cleanings for Irrigated and Dryland Cotton

Blake K. Bennett and Sukant K. Misra


This study analyzes the level of lint cleanings in the gin plant that would maximize producer net revenues for a range of cotton prices. Results indicate that no generalized prescription should be made. The optimal level of lint cleaning was found to depend on prices, price premiums resulting from additional lint cleaning, turnout percentage, and time of harvest.
