Introduction


Arizona cotton growers received renewed optimism last year with spot prices increasing above the current target price of 72.4 cents/lb. in late October for the first time since July of 1998. Changing global market conditions and production technologies continue to present opportunities and challenges for Arizona’s cotton industry. Arizona cotton farmers have demonstrated their agility to respond to these challenges and have done better than many predicted.

Performance of new technologies and production methods, along with the continued efficacy of established technologies and practices, for production regimes that vary from the low desert of Yuma to the high desert elevations in Southeast Arizona are the focus of articles included in the 2004 University of Arizona Cotton Report. This report is intended to provide scientific and unbiased information that will empower the irrigated cotton industry, particularly producers, in Arizona and the desert Southwest to improve their economic vitality.

The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at the University of Arizona is proud to be a part of the agricultural community of Arizona. The efforts of many scientists, students, technicians, and growercooperators are highlighted in this Cotton Report.
