Texas cotton crop down, but harvest 4th-largest in state history
LUBBOCK, Texas — A lingering drought has Texas farmers expecting to harvest nearly a third less cotton than they did last year, though growers in the nation's top cotton-producing state aren't panicking.

The 5.7 million bales projected Thursday by the U.S. Department of Agriculture would still be the fourth-largest cotton harvest on record. The state enjoyed a record 8.5 million bale harvest last year.

``It's good news for producers who have faced tough times this year with rising energy costs and the weather,'' said Shawn Wade, spokesman for the Plains Cotton Growers.

The USDA report shows yields at 652 pounds per acre, up from last month's 620 pounds per acre. Both are well below last year's 724 pounds per acre, but strong despite the less-than-ideal weather. Drought conditions during much of the growing season hammered dryland fields, erasing about 2.2 million planted acres.
