Preliminary Cotton Acreages for California Released

The California Department of Food and Agriculture’s Pink Bollworm Program have released the preliminary acreages for most of the cotton growing counties in California for 2019.  The breakdown is as follows:

The grand total of 261,327 acres statewide is up slightly from 257,820 acres statewide in 2018.  It is too early for the Pink Bollworm Program to confirm Pima/Upland splits, but current estimates put the split at 77%/23%, but we will wait for CDFA to confirm what was actually planted.
