Cotton the replacement crop?

For farmers in Oklahoma a new crop may take over those giving them problems. Due to harsh weather conditions and poor harvesting, many wheat crops have not grown properly. Some farmers are using the failure as opportunity to add a new crop to their land, cotton.
The replacement crop is not the easiest change to make, but it can add extra revenue or replace it.
The Oklahoma State University Extension office suggests checking rules and laws before making the change. If insurance claims were made on the failed crops, the land cannot be replanted until the next season. If it is done it is considered fraud.
There are also many tips to follow when using the appropriate herbicides and fertilizer. It is important to realize that cotton has a deep tap root that can utilize deep nitrogen in the soil that wheat cannot. Also, adequate moisture is needed produce a good crop.
