Matt and Kelly Griggs earn High Cotton Award

High Cotton winners exemplify sustainability

Matt and Kelly Griggs take pride in conserving and restoring natural resources in everything they do to produce cotton, corn, soybeans and wheat on the 1,800 acres they farm near Humboldt, Tenn.

They have followed sustainable practices for more than a decade on their Crockett County, Tenn., farm.

That commitment to preserve and restore natural resources, in addition to their commitment to efficient production and giving back to the industry through on-farm trials and demonstrations, earned them the 2020 High Cotton Award for the Mid-South Region.

Matt and Kelly received the award, sponsored by Farm Press and the Cotton Foundation, at the Memphis, Tenn., Mid-South Farm and Gin Show, Feb. 28.
