- 5.74 million bales projected
Right now abandonment is still only tallied at 160,000 acres, or 4.3 percent of planted acreage. The October storm losses could push that number higher, but probably not until USDA releases final county level totals next spring.
Nationally the November report estimated total U.S. Upland production at
17.92 million bales, down 455,000 bales from the October report. Yield reductions in Texas and Oklahoma, totaling 610,000 bales, were partially offset by increases in expected production in Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina and Virginia that totaled 155,000 bales.
The table below includes district level figures for Texas as reported by the Texas Agricultural Statistics Service and published by USDA NASS.
