Unlikeirrigated cotton which requires a supplemented water supply, dryland cotton is reliant on rainfall. Although growing dryland cotton can seem like a challenge as it requires a full soil moisture profile at the start of the season, rainfall during the summer months, and long periods of heat with low humidity, it has become easier in recent times due to major improvements in the farming system.
