Cotton Objective Yield Data
The National Agricultural Statistics Service conducted objective yield
surveys in four cotton-producing States during 2019. Randomly selected plots
in cotton fields are visited monthly from September through harvest to obtain
specific counts and measurements. Data in this table are actual field counts
from this survey.

(at least one inch in diameter), open bolls, partially opened bolls, and burrs
