More than 10 million hectares of cotton, half of which are irrigated, are grown in the Southern High Plains of Texas. Using conservation tillage systems with cotton following wheat has been shown to improve water use-efficiency as well as reduce wind erosion. This manuscript describes some of the nutrient management needs for Cotton grown in this systems. Research indicates that about 30 lb/ac of additional N is needed at planting when using conservation tillage systems compared to conventional tillage systems.
