The BWCC’s Cotton Consultants Conference will run from the afternoon of January 10 through the morning of January 11. Topics being considered include updates on ThryvOn™ cotton; herbicide resistance; the U.S. Cotton Trust Protocol®; changes in weather patterns and the impact on crops; regulatory updates and pesticide impacts from the Endangered Species Act; new precision agriculture technologies; impacts of climate; retail inventory and supply chain status of fertilizer and chemistries; and Dicamba usage.
The BWCC, coordinated by the National Cotton Council, annually brings together university and USDA researchers, regulatory agencies, extension personnel/agents, consultants, and industry sales/support personnel to exchange information about new products and production/processing systems that can be tailored to individual farming operations for maximum efficiency.
