Caption: Cotton field. Field of cotton, Gossypium sp., being harvested. Cotton is grown in warm climates for the fibrous bolls produced on the shrubs after flowering. Mechanical harvesters (seen in the distance) either pull the fibres from the open bolls or remove the bolls from the plant. Cotton is of great world economic importance as the raw material in the production of cloth. Photographed in California, USA.
