Cotton Ginning Cost Share Program America’s cotton producers have now faced four years of financial stress, just like the rest of the major commodities, but with a weaker safety net.

In particular, cotton producers confront high input and infrastructure costs, which leaves them more financially leveraged than most of their colleagues. The indicated answer is "Yes." The increased rate of output more than offset the higher costs per plant-hour so that costs per bale were lower for the elaborate gins.

Costs of operation for the elaborately eqiiipped gins exceeded those of the simply equipped gins by $7 to $10 per plant-hour (table 21). ginning mill machinery cost. ginning mill machinery cost.

For example, "direct operating costs" indicates that values of items included in the category are straightforward and used only in the production of one specific crop.

A "variable cost" category means that its values can fluctuate, depending upon the amount of input used. rates in each area. Capacity utilization in the sample gins, by area averages, climbed from 32 to 54 percent in West Texas, and from 36 to 51 percent in the Blacklands.
