Lint cleaning stripper-harvested cotton for maximizing producer net returns Academic Article uri icon


  • This analysis simulated net returns for six stripper harvested cotton cultivars to determine the number of lint cleanings that maximizes producer net returns. The study found that net returns were consistently higher for one lint cleaning in the gin plant for all cultivars regardless of time of harvest. One lint cleaning gave higher net revenue by an average of $4.54/bale, with a range of $7.35 to $1.92/bale, in comparison to two lint cleanings.
