Cotton prices have come under pressure due to continuing trade uncertainties and economic concerns. Cotton’s economic fundamentals still favor better prices, however.

Central time.
Shurley also will discuss the seed cotton program and ARC/PLC for all covered commodities contained in the new farm bill for 2019-2023. He will also talk about changes in the new farm bill compared to the law.
Shurley is widely published in industry media and websites, is a sought-after conference speaker, and author of the Cotton Marketing News newsletter through Southern Cotton Growers.
