Author notes

Evaluation of narrow-row cotton is a long-term project involving many U.C. staff members. Those participating in the phase of the study reported here include

The authors gratefully acknowledge the cooperation and support from individual cotton growers for land, labor, and other resources for conducting test plots; equipment manufacturers for the use of planting and harvesting equipment; cotton organizations and agencies for supplemental grant funds; and the USDA Cotton Research Station, Shafter, for the use of small-scale ginning facilities and fiber analysis.
