Randy Hargrove checks his soil before planting cotton near Memphis, TX. Despite a dry year in 2013, Hargrove averaged better than four bales of cotton on one 72-acre field & topped three bales on most of his 400-acres of cotton. Good variety, good water, a sound nutrition program & timely management, he says, are keys to hitting yield goals.
