Webinar features cotton market updates, decision tools for program sign up

Dr. John Robinson, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension will highlight the risks facing the cotton market going in to the 2019 cropping season in a University of Arkansas webinar, 3:00 P.M. Central Time, Thursday, Nov. 15.   

A combination of large planted acreage, adequate soil moisture, and likely low abandonment and above average yields may result in a strong supply response that weakens prices during 2019. Growers planning on producing cotton should consider relatively early forward pricing or hedging strategies. The webinar will also highlight available tools to assist growers in farm program and insurance decisions.

Robinson received B.S. and M.S. degrees in Entomology, and a Ph.D in Agricultural Economics, all from Texas A&M University. His prior experience includes research and extension within the Texas A&M University System (College Station, Thrall, Vernon, Weslaco) and at Mississippi State University. His current extension program emphasizes risk management issues related to cotton, including cash markets, hedging, contracting, insurance, policy, and transportation/logistics.
