U.S. Cotton Industry Releases Natural Resource Survey
January 26, 2016

In order to better understand the challenges that U.S. cotton growers face and to develop technologies to address those challenges, the U.S. cotton industry conducted the Natural Resource Survey (NRS). U.S. cotton producers were surveyed to assess cotton’s impact on the environment, providing an effective means to understand farm inputs, production trends and grower concerns. A similar study was conducted in 2008 allowing the industry to benchmark and measure progress over the past six years. The 2015 Natural Resource Survey findings indicate the technologies adopted by U.S. cotton growers are contributing to continuous improvement, both in terms of increased yields and reducing environmental impacts, due to increased resource use efficiency.
