Just how is cotton raised in the United States? And what are farmers doing to be more sustainable with this important fiber and oilseed crop? Good questions both, and the industry is stepping up to answer that for buyers with information direct from growers in the U.S. Cotton Trust Program.
The program helps farmers better understand their operations and find ways to keep becoming more efficient. In this episode of Around Farm Progress, Sledge Taylor, who farms in northern Mississippi, joined the Trust Protocol where he shares his farm information into the system. For clarification, his information remains private – as he explains – but is aggregated to provide full transparency to cotton buyers about how U.S. cotton is produced.
Taylor discusses why he joined the program, the process involved and offers some insight into why other farmers should join, no matter their farm size. It’s an interesting program with aiming to show a competitive world market that U.S. farmers are ahead of the curve.
