  • Cost of Producing Cotton in the U.S. and Competing Countries 

    Ethridge, Don E.; Andrew, Priscilla (National Cotton Council, 1987)
    The long-run competitiveness of the U.S. cotton industry in the world market is determined largely by the industry's production costs relative to other countries. Estimated costs of producing cotton in the U.S. and in nine ...
  • Cost Trade-Offs of Stripper-Mounted Bur Extractors from the Producers' Perspective 

    Brashears, Alan; McPeek, Brent D.; Bennett, Blake K.; Misra, Sukant K. (National Cotton Council of America, 1997)
    The objective of this study was to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of using a bur extractor in cotton stripping. Results indicate that the bur extractor has statistically significant effect on bur percent, stick percent, ...
  • Cost/Benefit Analysis of Bur Extractors in Cotton Harvesting 

    Brashears, Alan; Sukant, Misra K.; Bennett, Blake K. (Journal of Agribusiness, 1997)
    The objective of this research was to estimate the effect of using bur extractors in cotton stripping on foreign material in harvested cotton, on both quality attributes and lint turnout, and to determine the minimum ...
  • Cost/Benefit Analysis of Bur-Extractors in Cotton Ginning 

    Brashears, Alan; Bennett, Blake K.; Nelson, Jeannie; Misra, Sukant K. (1998)
    This study provides estimates for costs and benefits to the gin when bur-extracted cotton is processed. Results indicate that gins incur a net loss of about $3 per bale of cotton by processing bur-extracted cotton.
  • Cost/Trade-Offs of Stripper Mounted Bur Extractors from the Cotton Industry Perspective
