Cotton Cultivated Web Site Adds Custom Weather Feature
Beltwide Weather Report Developed for Cotton Cultivated by Agrible
(MEMPHIS, Tenn.) – Cotton Incorporated's producer-centric Web site, Cotton Cultivated, has a new weather tool tailored for cotton growers. The tool delivers weekly weather video forecasts that focus on the U.S. Cotton Belt. These two-to-four minute weather videos will be posted to the Cotton Cultivated Web site each Thursday morning and provide an overview of weather trends for the coming week.
The weekly weather reports are being developed by Agrible, an organization providing innovative, easy-to-use products that farmers and companies can use to improve their production.
"We continue to build the Cotton Cultivated site to make sure we are meeting the needs of the U.S. cotton growing community," says Ryan Kurtz, Director of Agricultural Research for Cotton Incorporated. "The Cotton Cultivated site is aimed at helping users find cotton specific information as quickly and easily as possible, and the new weather feature provided by Agrible is just another way we are giving cotton growers access to important information" said Kurtz.
Users can access the weekly weather outlook videos on the mid-right side of the Cotton Cultivated homepage (cottoncultivated.cottoninc.com).
