Doug Scott, 2021 High Cotton Award winner, adjusts to challenges

Despite a wet harvest, Doug Scott harvested close to 4,600 acres of cotton in 2020.
A short planting season and a muddy harvest were factors in a challenging year.

Despite running cotton pickers in the mud, Doug Scott says 2020 turned out a decent harvest for his cotton crop outside of Sikeston, Mo.

“First off, no one wants to hear you complain about it,” Scott said. “It is what it is and there’s a lot more people that have faced worse issues than what we have had. And with that, we’ve had a pretty decent crop, in fact a good crop.”
