Caption: Mechanised cotton harvesting. Harvesting of cotton plants (Gossypium sp.), a crop grown for its fibres, which are woven into fabric. The white fibres, known as lint, are seed hairs contained within a seed capsule or boll. The harvesters (left) either pull the fibres from open bolls or remove the bolls from the plant. Here, the harvested cotton is being transferred into a cotton module builder (right), which compresses the cotton into large cubes (modules) ready for processing. Photographed in Mississippi, USA.
