The objective of this study was to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of using a bur extractor in cotton stripping. Results indicate that the bur extractor has statistically significant effect on bur percent, stick percent, seed cotton percent, and lint turnout. Results also suggest that investment in bur extractors is profitable for bot irrigated and dryland cotton producers, depending on their individualized production scenarios.
