Vaughn: Cotton is a big deal in Georgia

I came to Georgia from the Midwest, and one of the things I had to learn about once I got here was what the crops and the growing conditions were like. One of those crops is cotton, one of the biggest agricultural products in the South. This article was written by Campbell Vaughn, UGA Extension agent for Richmond County, and covers how cotton grows and is harvested. It was published in the Augusta Chronicle this week and gives an excellent look at this unique crop.
