The annual University of Tennessee Cotton Focus is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 11 at the West Tennessee Research and Education Center, Jackson, Tenn.

Cotton Focus features presentations from UT Research and Extension Specialists containing new information on topics such as cotton budgets, weed control systems, seeding rates, insect management and cotton variety selection and performance.

Each year Cotton Focus serves as a valuable learning opportunity for many area producers and industry employees. Visitors have the chance to hear the latest findings in cotton research, and have their questions answered by university specialists before planting begins.

UT Extension Cotton Specialist Chris Main says educational opportunities like Cotton Focus help the state’s producers stay competitive.

Registration for Cotton Focus 2010 begins at 8 a.m. and will conclude at noon.

Cotton Focus is held in conjunction with Tennessee Agricultural Production Association Agronomic Work Shop.

Pesticide points and Certified Crop Advisor points will be available to participants.

The West Tennessee Research & Education Center is located at 605 Airways Boulevard in Jackson, Tenn.
