A report from Wrangler, Seeding Soil's Potential, contains the results of an analysis of scientific studies to identify sustainable cotton farming techniques that promote soil health. In this 16-page paper, Wrangler science advisors conclude that more sustainable cotton-farming practices can improve yields, reduce costs, and reduce carbon losses. This publication focuses on the gains in soil health to be achieved through the use of conservation tillage, cover crops, and conservation crop rotations. It discusses some of the benefits of focusing on soil health in cotton production and provides some examples from the experiences of growers.
