Organic Cotton Production


Cotton sold as organic must be grown according to the federal guidelines for organic crop production. Soil fertility practices that meet organic certification standards typically include crop rotation, cover cropping, animal manure additions, and use of naturally occurring rock powders. Weed management is accomplished by a combination of cultivation, flame weeding, and other cultural practices. This publication discusses specific insect management strategies. Seedling disease, soil disease, and foliar disease management are also discussed.
