Cotton farm in Winnsboro, Louisiana USA

Pilot trial of 100mm Hydrosmart H100EO, on saline ground water supply, for cotton farm in Winnsboro, Louisiana USA

Trial has been very successful, cotton normally has burned leaves where water gets on plants. But with 3000ppm salt plants stayed green and production was better.

Cotton is a natural fibre grown on a plant related to the hibiscus. The seeds are planted in spring and cotton plants grow into green, bushy shrubs about a metre in height. The plants briefly grow pink and cream coloured flowers that once pollinated, drop off and are replaced with “fruit”, better known as cotton bolls.
Inside each cotton boll is the fluffy white lint that we’re all familiar with, as well as a number of cotton seeds. In Australia the cotton is picked with large mechanical harvesters and sent off to the cotton “gin” for processing.
During the ginning process, the lint is separated from the seeds and is then pressed into bales and shipped overseas to be spun, dyed, knitted and woven into fabrics like clothes and home furnishings.
