By Cotton Incorporated
Over the last 35 years, U.S. cotton producers, researchers, and industry organizations have been committed to implementing innovative farm-level technologies, management systems, and conservation practices. These improvements have led to increases in cotton fiber yield while bettering our natural resources. Now, the U.S. cotton industry is preparing for the future by setting goals on the path towards sustainable farming. To learn more, join Cotton Incorporated on Tuesday, May 11 at 2 p.m.
Cotton Incorporated’s Chief Sustainability Officer, Dr. Jesse Daystar and Vice President of Agriculture and Environmental Research, Dr. Kater Hake will discuss the goal-setting process by the U.S. cotton industry as well as the path producers, researchers, and stakeholders are on to achieve these goals.
