Cotton growers who were not able to attend the recent Crop Management Seminar in Mississippi have another chance to hear more about precision during the upcoming Beltwide Cotton Conferences.
The National Cotton Council works closely with Cotton Incorporated on planning technical and producer sessions for the Beltwide, which this year will include workshops on zone fertility management, precision software for consultants and precision record keeping.
Cotton Inc economist Dr. Jeanne Reeves says precision record keeping can help producers manage input costs more effectively. “We’re going to show how all aspects of that – from the crop production side, to the accounting side, to keeping up with labor, filing tax returns – is all part of the software growers can use to manage their business,” Reeves said.
The Beltwide Cotton Conferences are scheduled for January 5-8 in San Antonio.
