The gather rate of cotton differs from other food crops, it is often found that cotton gathers at twice the rate of other Fields.
The gather rate for natural patches of cotton is between 0.03 and 0.04 per tile.
The gather rate for Fields is between 0.1 and 0.2 per field this however varies with the fertility on which the field is placed.
Since cotton can only be grown in the Continental biome its fertility is limited to a max of 3 since Continental biomes can not be more fertile then fertility 3. this limits the output of a field of Cotton while its compeditor Flax which can be grown in Mediterranean, Arid and Desert biomes can have a fertility upto 6.
