The article focuses on the productivity and profit making in the cotton yield. Carver is a self-professed part-time farmer, holding another job in the agricultural industry. He tried to match the production system with what the land will produce. He look at topographical or soil maps, and talk to the farmers from whom he rent land. Carver consistently makes 700 to 800 pounds per acre on narrow-row cotton. Over a three-year history, narrow-row yields have averaged about a bale and a half. Carver says that he had more money in that crop.
