The 2019 Seed Cotton PLC Matrix has been updated to reflect the most recent seed cotton program payment estimate for the 2019/2020 crop year.
The matrix is a helpful decision tool for producers as they begin to make their Title I policy decisions for the 2019 and 2020 crop years. Growers can plug in their own seed cotton yield to estimate their seed cotton PLC payment rate per base acre. The matrix takes into account the marketing year average (MYA) price for lint and seed.
It is current as of March 13, 2020 and will be updated monthly throughout the marketing year, which runs from August 1, 2019 through July 31, 2020.
