How quickly does cotton renew itself?

    In most normal conditions cotton is an annual crop, that is, it can be grown in a cycle lasting a year. Planting time in the Northern Hemisphere can begin as early as February and last until June, with harvest occurring in the fall. Cotton can thrive in soils that are not necessarily heavy in nutrients, which means theoretically you can grow crops in the same fields for at least a few successive years before the soil nutrients become too denuded to support it (a problem that farmers usually avoid altogether through crop rotation). Through the use of irrigation cotton can also be grown in drier areas than has historically been the case, though of course irrigation has certain environmental impacts.
