The article presents information on the production of the 2005 cotton crop in Georgia. Although most of the area was affected by significant rainfall from hurricanes, and much of the remainder of Georgia had about eight to 10 days of overcast weather with no significant rainfall, the production was still satisfactory. East Georgia was hit with 6 to 8 inches of rain, but their yields were reported to be still quite good. Reports from seed companies indicate that two to three million acres of the U.S. cotton could be planted in Roundup Ready Flex varieties in 2006.
