This week’s Cotton Newsline is three cuts. All cuts are Tommy Doederlein, an extension agent with the Texas Agricultural Extension Service.
Suggested introduction cut one:
Tommy Doederlein, an extension agent with the Texas Agricultural Extension Service, presented results earlier this year on fiber quality tests on hail damaged cotton in West Texas, and the results were not surprising.
Suggested introduction cut two:
The U.S. cotton crop had a record year in 2004. If hail had not devastated West Texas’ crop, the country’s total crop would have been much larger.
Suggested introduction for cut three:
Doederlein thinks genetically modified cottonseed created to withstand hail damage may help save cotton damaged by large hail.
