NCC announces 2015 P.I.E. Program tour dates

The P.I.E. program provides cotton producers the opportunity to maximize production efficiency and improve yields and fiber quality.

Southwest cotton producers will travel to Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi August 16-21 and Mid-South producers will travel to Texas on July 26-31 for the 2015 National cotton Council Producer Information Exchange (P.I.E.) Program.

The P.I.E. program provides cotton producers the opportunity to maximize production efficiency and improve yields and fiber quality by: 1) gaining new perspectives in such fundamental practices as land preparation, planting, fertilization, pest control, irrigation and harvesting; and 2) observing diverse farming practices and the unique ways in which their innovative peers have adopted new and existing technology.

For the latest on southwest agriculture, please check out Southwest Farm Press Daily and receive the latest news right to your inbox.

In other regions, Southeast producers will see operations in California on July 12-17; Western producers will visit Georgia on August 2-7.

Sponsored by Bayer CropScience through a grant to The Cotton Foundation, the P.I.E. is now in its 27th year and has exposed more than 1,100 U.S. cotton producers to innovative production practices in regions different than their own. The NCC's Member Services staff, in conjunction with local producer interest organizations, conducts the program, including participant selection.
