The Numbers 

2020 is set to have the highest annual income for farms since 2013 when the market peaked at $139.1 billion. Following that year, the market crashed and this upcoming year is expected to have the first upturn in profit since. This year, it is projected that US farms will bring in a total of $96.7 billion, a 3.3% rise from last year.

As of 2019, there were approximately 14 million acres across the country dedicated to cotton, about 6 million of these acres within Texas alone. Now though, there is a fear that in the upcoming years cotton acres will begin to plummet.
