Harvest shows Danny’s last crop was a good one

Family, friends and the cotton community in southwest Oklahoma turned out to make sure Danny Davis' last crop made it to the gin. It did, and it was good.

Danny Davis was a stickler for keeping his cotton fields in good shape. He followed no-till production for years to add organic matter to his soil and he kept his cotton as weed-free as possible. Folks who knew him said he always tried to make good yields but he also wanted the crop to look good.

His untimely, shocking death last fall came before he could judge how well the 2016 crop turned out. I think he would have been pleased, and with help from family, friends and the cotton community, the cotton matured and produced about two bales per acre. See also

Here are some photos from Danny’s final crop. Thanks to Danny’s wife Sherry for the harvest photos.
