"The most social crop that I grow:” Part IV

Rayner says cotton is also the “most social” crop he grows, one that involves numerous personal relationships for him and his family members with other segments of the cotton industry.

Ron Rayner says no other crop he grows is a complex as cotton. That’s saying something for someone who farms in two states and manages a wide range of crops ranging from cotton to citrus to wine grapes.

He says it’s also the “most social” crop he grows, one that involves numerous personal relationships for him and his family members with other segments of the cotton industry. (Rayner served a term as chairman of the National Cotton Council.)

He made those comments while accepting the Cotton Boll Award from Cary Blake, retired editor of Western Farm Press who also nominated Rayner for the High Cotton Award for the Far West Region. A breakfast honoring the winners was held at the Mid-South Farm and Gin Show in Memphis. Tenn.
