The wonderful crop that is cotton.

I think cotton is important because we use it for clothing a bunch more of things we use in everyday life.

It is an oilseed.


Native to Africa.

Texas is most producing us state.

No one knows exactly how old cotton is. Scientists searching

caves in Mexico found bits of cotton bolls and pieces of cotton cloth that proved to be at least 7,000 years old. They also found that the cotton itself was much like that grown in America today.

They are used to produce goods such as bandages, swabs, bank notes, cotton buds and x-rays.

They are used for clothing and sheets and other useful cloths.
