Stoneville cotton seed is celebrating the history of the south with a special Legacy Club to honor growers averaging more than 1,794 lb/acre of Stoneville seed cotton grown on 20- acres or more. The 1,794 mark was chosen to remember the year Eli Whitney patented the cotton gin.
Those who qualify for membership also have the opportunity to attend a Legacy Club event in their area for a chance to win a Polaris Ranger XP 1000 EPS. Throughout the spring of 2017, entries will be collected and one name will be drawn at random to receive the Ranger.
“In the Legacy Club, we remember our roots,” Wistehuff says. “Both our growers and our Stoneville cotton seed are deeply rooted in the cotton industry, and that history is what our local events will celebrate.”
Stoneville cotton seed must be planted on 100 percent of qualifying acres between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016, and club qualification is open to all 17 cotton-producing states. Growers are encouraged to contact their local Bayer sales rep or agronomic services representative to learn how to sign up, and visit www.Stoneville.com/LegacyClub for more information.
