Kansas Acres Planted To Cotton On The Rebound
12/17/2009

While Kansas is known as a wheat state, in southern parts of the state it's cotton harvesting time.

The Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service says the number of acres planted to cotton dropped from 125,000 in the middle of the decade to about 32,000 this year. However, that is an increase of 7,000 acres from last year.

The agency forecast cotton production of 41,000 bales this year, an increase of 21 percent from last year.

More than half the state's crop will be ginned in Winfield and Anthony. The gin in Anthony started Tuesday and isn't expected to stop until nearly February.
