Caption: Spraying defoliant on mature cotton. Fixed wing aerial application aircraft covering mature cotton plants (Gossypium sp.) with a defoliant. A defoliant is used to make the leaves of the cotton plants fall off, so that the bolls (balls of raw cotton fibres) can be harvested more easily. Photographed during early autumn in San Joaquin Valley, California, USA.
