Caption: Inspecting cotton stubble. Farmer examining the stubble of no-till cotton plants (Gossypium sp.) after the field has been treated with a preplant burndown herbicide. Agricultural land is usually tilled in order to remove weeds from the ground and no-till farming has a number of advantages over the tilling method. However, due to the ground being left undisturbed, preplant burndown weedkiller must be used in order to remove unwanted growth and the stubble from the previous year's crop before planting can occur. Photographed in Arkansas, USA.
