Genetic and Agronomic Improvement in Cotton Quality Review and Projection the High Plains

J.R. Gannaway and J.K. Dever


Cotton was first grown commercially in the Lubbock area in 1901. Two production reports that year were for a 75 acre field yielding 23 bales and a 10 acre field producing three (3) bales. The cotton had to be hauled to Snyder, a roundtrip of 180 miles, where it was ginned because the first gin in the Lubbock area was not built until 1905.
