The current cotton picker is a self-propelled machine that removes cotton lint and seed (seed-cotton) from the plant at up to six rows at a time. There are two types of pickers in use today. One is the "stripper" picker, primarily found in use in Texas. They are also found in Arkansas. stripper-type harvester was introduced by the John Deere Co. in the 1930's. About 40 percent of our cotton was picked by spindle-type pickers and 15 percent by stripping machines in 1962. Mechanical harvesting was a giant step of progress, but it created problems for the ginner. Handpickers send seed cotton to the gin relatively clean.
