“Cotton producers should be fully informed about the research being conducted with their support of the Cotton Research and Promotion Program,” says Bill Gillon, CEO of The Cotton Board. “We want producers to be aware of this work and want to provide insight regarding our Program’s priorities. There is a lot of research being conducted in West Texas, and all across the Cotton Belt.  We hope this initial regional update meeting will help cotton growers learn about that research.”
