Shawn Wade is Optimistic About 2021 Cotton Conditions and Prices

Tue, 17 Aug 2021 13:30:04 CDT

Shawn Wade is Optimistic About 2021 Cotton Conditions and Prices After a late start, the cotton crop in the Texas Panhandle is estimated to bloom from August 18 to 20, according to Shawn Wade, director of policy analysis and research for Plains Cotton Growers.

Radio Oklahoma’s own, KC Shepherd spoke on the 2021 southwest cotton crop conditions with Wade, who said the crop is on track when considering the planting date. If the fall weather cooperates with farmers, 2021 will be a good year for cotton.

“When you drive around the countryside - from north to south - there’s a lot of pretty cotton out here,” Wade said. “It doesn’t happen very often where you have a strong demand and pricing situation heading into the latter half of a growing season.”

Wade said everything looks great for 2021 cotton right now and folks will have to just wait and see how the next two months pan out. For many cotton growers in the Texas panhandle, a good cotton year would be a turnaround from recent years.
