Zahid Hussain Khan, Pakistan "Due to recent cutbacks in lately approved government budget, many people have to cut out expensive food from outside. Labour class, specially woodcutters, find it difficult to survive on such low wages.
Because of problems related to their refinement, they are not economically feasible to use. Currently, there are five prominent types of cotton being grown commercially around the world.
Because of their need for a long, sunny growing period with at least frost free days they are grown between latitudes 45 degrees north and 30 degrees south. Some cotton is also grown in Florida, Kansas and New Mexico.
All of these states form a region in the United States known as the Cotton Belt and have three things in common, lots of sunshine, water and fertile soil, very important to growing a good cotton crop. Upland cotton being the most common type in the U.
These plant types grow and mature at different rates and lengths of time, but basically mature within a 30 day period of each other. Cotton plants have a general time frame in which they grow and produce after planting introducing the seed to moist soil.
With ideal conditions, the planted cotton seed will germinate to begin to grow or sprout and emerge in about five to ten days. The first 2 leaves that are visible on the young cotton plant are seedling leaves called cotyledons cot-a-lee-dons. They are useful for absorbing sunlight into the plant.
The sunlight is then converted through a process known as photosynthesis, into nourishing carbohydrates that will help the plant grow. In about two to four weeks they turn over the photosynthetic task to true leaves leaves produced subsequent to the cotyledons which continue the feeding process for the duration of the plants life.
The plant continues to grow, adding leaves and height, and in approximately five to seven weeks, small flower buds called squares a small flower bud covered with fringed leaf-like parts called bracts will appear on the cotton plant. As this square develops, the bud swells and begins to push through the bracts until it opens into an attractive flower.
Within three days, the flower will pollinate the transfer of pollen from the anther to the stigma of the same or another flower itself, change from a creamy white or yellow color to a pinkish red, and then wither and fall, exposing a small, green, immature cotton boll a segmented pod containing 32 immature seeds from which the cotton fibers will grow.
This boll is considered a fruit because it contains seeds.
As the fibers continue to grow and thicken within the segmented boll, it enlarges until it becomes approximately the size of a small fig. Now, the cotton fibers have become mature and thickened with their primary growth substance, cellulose a carbohydrate, the chief component of the cell wall in most plants.
An average boll will contain nearlyfibers of cotton and each plant may bear up to bolls In about days after planting or 45 days after bolls appear, the cotton boll will begin to naturally split open along the bolls segments or carpels and dry out, exposing the underlying cotton segments called locks.
The growth cycle of the various cotton species vary in length, but the sequence of fruit production remain the same. For almost 90 years, the Company has used its extensive cotton plant breeding programs drawing from a diverse germplasm base to develop improved varieties.Unit 2: Planting Colonies in North America.

The City of Ottawa's Green Acres program is looking for empty idle fields to be transformed into thriving green woodlands. The program provides landowners with advice and assistance for setting up a proper planting plan for their property(ies).
Planting the Wild Garden by Kathryn O. Galbraith was delightful! Wendy Anderson Halperin added to the story through her illustrations. While the book didn't focus on specific wildflowers, it showed that many animals and other natural forces help "plant" wild gardens.
