Producers Jeff and Phiny Posey recently visited with Farm Press in their barn and on the turn row of their drip-irrigated cotton crop near Roby, Texas. Jeff, the 2010 Farm Press High Cotton winner, discussed his term as chairman of The Cotton Board, including challenges and successes and how the board, Cotton Incorporated and the National Cotton Council are working on behalf of cotton producers to increase their bottom line.
The Cotton Board is the oversight and administrative arm of the Cotton Research & Promotion Program. "All the research and promotion is about moving cotton. So, the more cotton moved through the supply chain, the more profit there is in cotton," Posey says.
Posey's term will end in August. Watch the video above to hear more about what Posey had to say.
