Process sequence of Cotton Cultivation and Harvesting

Process sequence of Cotton Cultivation and Harvesting:
Seed are sown in spring
They sprout after 2-3 week
After 2-3 months of sprouting plant flowe3rs bloom
The flowers fall off after a few days and leaving cotton balls.
Seed hairs start to grow inside the balls
For 16-18 days fiber length and other parameter are achieved
For the next 22-50 days, cellulose is deposited inside the fiber
When cellulose deposition is stopped, the balls become dry and burst normally and the cotton appears as a soft wad of fine fiber
The balls are picked up manually or by machine, these picking periods continue for 1-3 months.
Finally the balls are taken for ginning to collect the fibers.
