104 growers recognized for their half-ton and higher yields

High-end harvests do not happen overnight – dryland growers know this best. To celebrate season-long success, the FiberMax® Maximizer Club™ recently honored 104 members, including 75 new growers. To qualify, growers produced half-ton and higher yields with FiberMax varieties on dryland acres in 2017.

The Maximizer Club recognizes growers who take on the challenge of dryland production. 

“Growers combine their skill with high-quality FiberMax varieties to achieve exceptional yields,” says Kerry Grossweiler, Southern campaign manager for FiberMax cotton. “It’s a challenge to deliver quality and yield on any land, especially dryland. This club exists to honor growers’ hard work and commitment despite farming in tough conditions.”

  • Charles and Janet Braden of Garden City, Texas recorded the highest yield among the 2017 FiberMax Club qualifiers with 1,795 pounds per acre.
  • Tate and Jennifer Greer and Bart and Shawnda Greer of Floydada, Texas, came in with the highest loan value, garnering $0.5484.
  • Rann and Kerri Williams of Altus, Oklahoma, qualified the most acres for the club. They harvested at least a half-ton of dryland cotton yields averaging 624.44 acres.
