Comparison of Regional Cotton Production Costs

J.E. Mehlhorn, S.W. Martin and C.W. Herndon


This paper attempts to compare the cost of production for cotton for 7 cotton producing states in the southern United States. Cotton planning budgets for 1997 were collected from each land-grant university in each state. The paper found that Alabama had the highest average cost of production per acre among the 7 states observed. The paper also concluded that the delta area states had on average a lower total cost of production than the southeast area states.
