Introduction


Struggle is synonymous with working in production agriculture. This struggle has become even more intense as market values for many crops have recently plummeted to historically low levels. Cotton production in Arizona is certainly no exception to this plight. Cotton production worldwide has increased dramatically resulting in a large supply with limited demand. As a result, cotton producers in Arizona are striving to maintain a competitive position in the national as well as the international arena.

As a partner to the agricultural community in Arizona, The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at the University of Arizona is involved in research and educational programs with the ultimate goal of providing the producers of this region with best information and technology available. The goal is to assist growers in being more efficient with resource management to maintain a profitable and sustainable system of production.

The publication of the 2002 University of Arizona Cotton Report is intended to provide a summary of the cotton-related research that has been conducted recently. The information provided by this and similar research reports, provide the basis from which crop management recommendations and guidelines are developed. Production recommendations and guidelines are then extended into the cotton production community in Arizona and this region through the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension System.
