Question: how much cotton lost and is there still time to plant again?

WEST TEXAS - Strong storms have brought beneficial rainfall but also damage to some young cotton plants just doing their best to get established. In places, large hail and extremely high winds – in some locales exceeding 90 miles per hour – overturned pivots and flattened fields in several portions of the South Plains and West Texas. Parmer County reportedly will lose about 30 percent of the crop to hail, and significant damage also has been reported in several other counties.
