​The 2014 production season was certainly unique but was very rewarding to some growers in the Southeast and Mid-South regions of the cotton belt. This presentation will provide an overview of 2014 season in the Southeast and Mid-South regions to help explain how cotton performance was influenced by weather and other factors, as well as illustrate the challenges that producers faced this year. Specifically in this presentation, each state will be described in terms of weather, insect pressure in 2014, projected acreage and yields, and other challenges that growers faced.
