Cotton and sorghum were grown in rotation in 2001 and 2002 at Bushland, TX on a Pullman clay loam soil under furrow irrigation. Cotton yields were not different in the rotation compared with continuous sorghum and cotton. Sorghum yield was increased 11% by the rotation following cotton. Additional research in seasons with differing climatic patterns will be required before absolute conclusions are developed. The 2002 results definitely indicated an advantage for a rotation of sorghum with cotton. Future research will examine the crop rotation with limited irrigation of sorghum following irrigated cotton.
