Area Cotton Farmers Preparing to Harvest this Year’s Crop Soon

By Connie Burcham

 

Sooner state farmers planted about 780,000 acres of cotton this year, according to estimates from Oklahoma Cotton Council Executive Director Harvey Schroder. In 2017, that number was just more than 470,000 acres. Dryland cotton may remain in the fields until first frost, usually in early November in this area. Schroder said producers with early cotton may have used a defoliant – a product that causes the leaves to drop from the plants – but with recent heavy rains, are finding it impossible to get into the fields to harvest.

It Isn’t Always About The Score

There was a special moment at the football game against Hollis on Friday night which highlighted the life lessons that can be learned from team sports.

With the Blue Devils holding a 41 to 14 lead with just under six minutes to play, the Hollis coach called a time out.

“We had arranged this earlier,” said Cordell Head Coach Dustin Beasley. “There was a good possibility Hollis wouldn’t have the ball again since our run game had been so effective, so this was the time for Hollis to put in their special player.”
