The article focuses on hardlock problem in cotton in South Carolina. A good many South Carolina cotton producers have probably had lots of trouble with hardlock at harvest this year. Hardlock is when lint in the cotton boll fails to fluff enough to be picked up by the spindles of a picker. When the spindles hit those bolls, the bolls just fall apart and drop to the ground. Yields can be cut by 15-20 percent in a wet year like this one. It informs that in 2003 South Carolina had a good fall. It was dry and sunny and good for cotton.
