If you plant spring barley or oats following your cotton, any volunteer will winter kill in your wheat crop the next winter. Fallow is a conflicting thing. If you till it, you lose soil structure. If you spray it, then you lose microbial biodiversity. A growing multi species cover is ideal, but sometimes it's so dry that it is hard to get that going also.
