Jackson County Farm Bureau members Matt Muller and Mike Schulz recently shared the highlights of this year’s cotton harvest in a OETA story.
Cotton, Oklahoma’s fourth largest export, is being harvested across the state until around Thanksgiving.
“Every once in a blue moon, things (demand, prices and production) will line up,” Muller said. “This year prices are at a 10-year high, which is good.”
Both Muller and Schulz explained the cotton industry fluctuates from year to year and is dependent on the world economy and weather conditions.
