Reminder on Dec. 29 for cottonseed assistance signup

Ginners whose production is eligible for 2005 cottonseed disaster assistance have until Dec. 29 to file applications for the program with USDA.

Counties contiguous to those are also included in the program, according to National Cotton Council officials familiar with the program.
