The cottonseed harvest in the U.S. has been a bit of a bummer for the cotton industry, but it’s finally back to a point where we can say with some confidence that it’s been a boon for the economy.
According to new data from the U-M Extension, the number of acres of cotton in production has hit an all-time high, reaching a record 4.8 billion acres in the third quarter of 2017, up from 4.3 billion acres during the first quarter of the year.
That’s a 3.4% increase in acreage over the same period last year.
The number of cottonseed plants planted in the United States reached 1.2 billion acres for the first time last year, and now there are more than 4.4 billion acres of acres.
This is a big jump from the number in 2016, which stood at 1.1 billion acres.
And this is on top of the 2.3 million acres planted in 2015, and the 2 million acres in 2014.
Cotton is expected to account for $1.7 trillion in annual U.M. cottonseed production over the next 15 years.
Cotton seed production is also up by a big margin over 2016, when it was down by almost 40%.
According to the UMass Extension, more than 40% of all U..
S cottonseed acreage was planted in 2017.
That means the number rose by almost 4%.
The number was up about 10% from the same time last season, when more than 35% of the U of M’s cottonseed was planted.
This represents an 11% jump from last year’s planting season, and up nearly 30% from 2014.
The increase in acres planted was even more impressive when you factor in the fact that there are now more than 10.5 million acres of acreage devoted to cotton production in the state.
And there are still some areas in the Midwest where there’s not enough cotton in the crop to support cotton production.
The biggest drivers of the increase in cottonseed acres in 2017 were the arrival of a new crop—the cotton beetle.
Cotton beetle infestations in the Northeast have caused a dramatic drop in cotton acreage, but there are some areas that are still experiencing high levels of cotton beetle infestation.
These areas are likely to see a spike in cotton production due to the beetle.
It’s also important to note that cotton acreages in the North, Midwest, and South are still far below their peak levels.
The North has just over a third of the acreage planted in 2016 and is projected to lose nearly 3% of its acreage to the crop.
The Midwest has just under half of the acres planted and is forecast to lose more than 2% of acreages.
The South is also expected to lose a lot of acrements, with nearly 2.5% of land now devoted to the crops.
As we mentioned, this is a lot.
It means that there will be some areas where the cotton crop will remain stagnant.
However, there are a few areas where we are seeing the crop grow.
As of last week, the cotton acreaging was up by more than 20% over the previous quarter, and there were more than 13.2 million acres available in the corn acreage.
Corn production has also increased slightly, by an average of 1.3% a quarter, to nearly 9.5 billion acres over the past year.
This growth comes at a time when the UMWF predicts that the Ummah crop will reach its highest level ever in the coming years.
The Ummahs corn acreages were nearly 15% higher in the last quarter than they were in the first three months of the last fiscal year.
And it’s not just corn that is growing.
The wheat crop is also growing, but in a more gradual fashion.
In 2017, the UMMah crop was up nearly 1.6% over last year—and that growth came from only 6.3 thousand acres of wheat planted.
But as of this week, there were nearly 11.5 thousand acres available.
That is a nearly 9% increase.
Overall, we are in a very good position with regards to the acreages available to the United State’s cotton crop.
In fact, we’re now down about 5% from last quarter’s acreage levels.
We’re also seeing some positive growth in corn acreaging, as the corn crop is still in the very early stages of growth, and we’re seeing some additional growth in the wheat crop.
Overall acreage is still up in the long term, and is expected increase about 10.2% over this year’s fourth quarter.
But it will take some time for the crop growth to reach its peak.
