How To Grow Cotton And Get Increased Yields

Cotton plant (Gossypium), is a genus of shrubs of the Malvaceae family. Most cotton types are widely bred for fiber and seeds. Fiber is used to produce fabrics and threads, while the seeds are used to produce oil and other products in food and other industries. In commercial cotton farming, it is usually an annual crop yielding once per growing season, but in the frost-free areas, the plant lives for several years, developing into a small shrub. Some cotton plantations in Peru produce yields annually for 3 years, and in northeastern Brazil – for up to 7 years.
