Cotton is planted every year?
Yes Like tomatoes, peppers and other plants, it is grown as a single annual, although it is a perennial plant in cotton. This means that planting takes place in the spring, we harvest (fiber and seed) in the autumn, and then destroy the crops by plowing the field. In this way, the field will be ready for October again next spring.
