Lon Mann Cotton Research Station

Established in 1925, the Cotton Research Station is known for developing improved cotton cultivars with genetic traits for faster fruiting and earlier maturity. An average of more than 30 research projects are conducted each year by university scientists. In addition to providing valuable information for Arkansas farmers, the field experiments provide training for young agricultural scientists and graduate students. The station was renamed in 2005 to honor the legacy of Lon Mann who was a leader in the development of Arkansas agriculture.
