The article focuses on Alan Brashears, an agricultural scientist who has worked on farm equipment improvements to decrease the production of barky cotton. Brashears devoted his most of the time in finding solutions of the problems of cotton mechanization. He was also involved in searching the ways of enhancing efficiency, and reducing trash content in the cotton production. The most distinguished and recognized work of Brashears was the modifications in harvest equipment that would separate bark from the lint.
