“I am very excited about working with Beltwide Cotton Genetics and feel this opportunity will enable me to do what I love best – work closely with farmers in the field to help them determine what cotton varieties and production systems will help them be the most profitable,” Bradley said.

Bradley was the leader of the University of Tennessee’s Milan Experiment Station for 14 years. During that time, he researched and developed many of the techniques used in no-till planting of cotton and other crops. More recently, he worked as the conservation tillage specialist for Monsanto.

He also directed the Milan No-Till Field Day, which has become one of the pre-eminent reduced tillage field days in the United States.

In his new role as account manager and consultant for Beltwide Cotton Genetics, Bradley will provide sales and agronomic oversight of the company’s new cotton varieties in the Mid-South. His primary responsibility will be to introduce Beltwide’s BCG-28R as the variety of choice for Bollgard refugia acres.
