Cotton About In

Posted by romeethredge on December 28, 2012

_DSC2175This has been a very familiar sight in the past months but is finally about to recess until next fall. It has been a good cotton year and we are thankful. There’s still a good bit to be ginned.  Now it’s time for planning for next year.

Cotton Producers should plan to attend the Commission’s 6th Annual Meeting on January 30, 2013, at the UGA Tifton Campus Conference Center.

The program starts at 10:00 a.m. and adjourns at 12:15 p.m. for lunch where there will be producer drawings.  Our program speakers are Mike Tate, president of Southern Cotton  Growers, Inc; Kater Hake, VP of Agricultural and Environmental Research with Cotton Incorporated; Kevin Latner, Executive Director of Cotton Council International and Mark Lange, President and CEO of the National Cotton Council.

The UGA Cotton Production Workshop that is co-sponsored by The University of Georgia and Georgia Cotton Commission is held on the same day as the Commission’s annual meeting.  The workshop sessions are conducted by the Cotton Team Scientists who will share with producers the latest production strategies learned from research funded by the Commission using growers’ dollars.  The workshop sessions cover a wide range of topics, as reflected on the workshop schedule.  There will be early morning concurrent workshop break-out sessions and they will be repeated following the the Commission’s luncheon and the Georgia Quality Cotton Awards presentations.

There is no charge to attend this educational event and the Commission hopes all cotton growers will attend.

Pre-registration is FREE and strongly encouraged to help with meal plans. Register online or call: 229.386.3416.
