Boosting U.S. Organic Cotton: Texas A&M’s $3.5 million dollar project targets growth
The demand for organic cotton is on the rise in the U.S., yet domestic production falls short, relying heavily on imports.
To help address this gap, a Texas A&M Agri Life Research project, funded by a USDA grant, aims to analyze challenges and opportunities for U.S. organic cotton growers.
The study seeks to empower producers by enhancing yields, productivity, and sustainability while transitioning more acreage into organic production.
The project also hopes to identify alternatives to synthetic herbicides for weed control.
