Discussion on Cotton Planting in Xinjiang During the Tang Dynasty

Xu Chengyan;  
Xinjiang is one of the earliest cotton-planting regions in China. Historical records revealed that cotton planting activities were prevalent in Gaochang Kingdom. In the Tang Dynasty, the scope of cotton planting was further expanded to Kashgar, Hotan and other regions, and cotton production was quite large. Locally, cotton was not merely used to weaving fabrics, but also as a present to royal court, and paid for military use, as well as performing currency functions. The cotton planting activities in Xinjiang in the Tang Dynasty not only promoted the popularization and promotion of cotton in the region, but also spread the technology to the Dunhuang region.
