Grower Lynn Gullett credits more "right things" than wrong things as the secret to his success this year.

Talking it over
Nutrien Ag Solutions Crop Consultant and good friend, Randy Redinger, walks through Gullett's cotton. "Randy is filled up with experience, not only on my field but all these other fields in the area," says Gullett.
The least produces the most
5-bale cotton: The cotton in the modules in the background of this photo are on Gullett's farm with the least amount of available irrigation, about 350 gallons per minute. This field out-produced his higher irrigation fields, making 13,000 pounds of corn and five-bale cotton. A record yield for Gullett.
“It's not always how much water you’ve got, it’s how you regulate it," says Gullett.
Harvesting that Cotton

After some wet weather, harvest crews are back in the fields, running as long as they can to harvest the 2018 crop, including on Lynn Gullett's farm.

Field of Dreams
Gullett returned to the family farm in 1992 to farm alongside his father Jack Gullett, who passed away in 2015. When asked what his father would have thought of this year’s crop, Gullett laughingly replies, “Oh my gosh! He’d be going out and buying racehorses.”
