On-board module builder clarified

An article about a new on-board module builder in the Jan. 14 edition of Western Farm Press should have listed the following numbers for the evolution of the cotton picker on producer Jimmy Hargett's farm over the last 43 years:

The one-row picker, one acre an hour; the two-row picker, 2 to 3 acres an hour; the four-row picker, 4 to 5 acres per hour; and the six-row picker 10 to 11 acres an hour. Hargett, the producer from Bells, Tenn., interviewed for the article, said he has harvested up to 400 bales a day with four six-row pickers.
