Cotton Production Workshop Coming in Tifton
The 1.66 million bales of cotton produced on Georgia farms last year were enough to make a pair of jeans and two T-shirts for every man, woman and child in the United States and Canada.

To help sustain that kind of effort, the ninth annual 0024 Georgia Cotton Production Workshop 0374 will offer a wealth of information for cotton growers, dealers and other agribusinesses Dec. 11-12 in Tifton, Ga.

Each morning will begin with 90-minute workshops. Topics will include:

  • Cotton weeds, insects, physiology, markets and new varieties.
  • Fertilizer and soil management.
  • A cotton industry update.
General sessions will cover:

  • New cotton developments.
  • The farm bill.
  • Water issues.
  • Many other topics.
Panel discussions each day will explore conservation tillage and skip-row cotton.

The workshop will begin at 8 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 11, at the Tifton Rural Development Center. It will end at 2:45 p.m. Wednesday. A $30 fee ($20 before Nov. 30) covers instruction, materials and refreshment breaks.
