USDA Predicts 2019 Oklahoma Cotton Crop Up 100,000 Bales from 2018 to 780,000 Bales Based on the USDA September Crop Production Report, Oklahoma upland cotton production is expected to total 780 thousand bales, 14 percent higher than 2018. Yield averaged 651 pounds per acre, compared with 595 pounds last year. Acreage harvested, at 575 thousand acres, is up 5 percent from last year. Based on the September Crop Report, Oklahoma will have the 8th largest cotton crop by state in the United States.

Expectations back in August were for a lot higher yield per acre- 851 pounds of lint versus the 651 pounds estimated in the September report- but the yield remains above a year ago and the number of expected harvested acres up gives us about 100,000 more bales of production this year versus last.

Oklahoma corn production totaled 44.1 million bushels, up 18 percent from the previous year. Statewide yields averaged 140 bushels per acre, 6 bushels higher than 2018. Acres harvested for grain, at 315 thousand, are up 13 percent from last year.
