Term Definition
Cotton
Cotton - The long, soft hairs covering the seed of the cotton plant (Gossypium). The English name began to be used in the 13th and 14th centuries and derives from the Arabic qutn. Cotton is a pesticide-intensive crop using approximately 25% of the world's insecticides and 10% of the world's pesticides so it is important to purchase organic cotton when it is available.
