Honoring farmers for their stewardship efforts
The objective of the High Cotton award program closely follows the philosophy of the Farm Press Publications — to help growers produce more profitable, higher quality crops, by providing them with timely, hard-hitting information about technological advances, governmental regulations, and marketing opportunities. Our goal is to identify the top cotton producers in each major growing region and to share their successful production methods with the readers of Southeast Farm Press, Delta Farm Press, Southwest Farm Press, and Western Farm Press. Nominees will be cotton growers who meet three important criteria: 1. The High Cotton nominee must be a full-time grower who gets a profitable return from producing cotton in one of the four Cotton Belt regions (Southeast, Mid-South, Southwest, and California- Arizona). 2. The nominee must produce cotton of consistently high quality. 3. The nominee must use environmentally sound production methods while producing a high quality, profitable cotton crop.
