The report summarizes reported data on air emissions from the mechanical harvesting of cotton, including the machine removal and collection of seed cotton from mature plants and the transport of this cotton from the field. Machine harvesting and field transport cause air pollution in the form of respirable dust, from soil and raw cotton, and agricultural chemicals contained in the cotton dust. Mechanical cotton harvesting accounted for 0.002% of the national respirable particulate emissions in 1972. Highest state contributions were 0.046% in Texas and 0.025% in Oklahoma. The air quality impact of cotton harvesting emissions was assessed in terms of source severity. The highest source severity was for raw cotton dust: 0.00703 for picking, and 0.035 for stripping.
