Texas High Plains Cotton Struggling With Mediocre Weather Conditions

Hurricane Harvey caused a lot of damage to parts of the Texas cotton crop, but the parts that were spared are now having problems finishing the season.

According to agronomists from Texas A&M, less than ideal weather conditions are coming to the high Plains, and cotton yields could take a tumble in the state’s fiber region.

Cool temperatures and cloudy weather have denied cotton fields the right heat for the plants to reach their full potential.

Since August, A&M says the combination of high temperatures and sunny days have been few and far between.
