Cotton industry seeking repeat of Ginning Cost Share Program

National Cotton Council leaders say they face uphill battle in winning support for new cotton ginning cost share program.

Many producers said the ginning cost share payments USDA provided in 2016 for the 2015 crop were life savers.

Now the cotton industry is seeking to gin up the program again for the 2016 crop. They face obstacles, including a higher cost, a new USDA and a less-than-friendly White House Office of Management and Budget.

But National Cotton Council leaders are leaving no stone unturned to restart the program this year and annually until Congress passes a new farm bill. The NCC’s Reece Langley discussed those efforts at the Southern Cotton Ginners Association’s summer meeting.
