Production and Disposal/Utilization of Cotton Ginwaste from the Texas High and Low Plains

Mark Castleberry and Emmett Elam


The 1996-97 Texas High and Low Plains Cotton Gin Waste (CGW) Utilization Survey was developed to provide a current assessment of the disposal methods used by gin operators. Results indicate that from a ginner's perspective costs associated with CGW disposal have increased since 1977. Results further suggest that even though basic disposal methods have remained constant, use of these methods has changed with compost and livestock feed increasing relative to soil amendment.
