Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: This study identifies the partial net value contributions of alternate soil types, tillage, rotational and pesticide treatments on cotton. Output and practice data were utilized from USDA-ARS cropping studies conducted from 1997 through 2002 in Florence, SC. Data were then converted to gross revenues net of quality adjustments and additions to cost from a baseline reflecting continuous cotton produced on Bonneau soil with conventional (disk) tillage and no Temik application. A hedonic-type regression was conducted to elicit the significance of the explanatory practice variables and their partial net contribution.
