New Focus on Cotton Webcast Introduces Growers to Cotton Incorporated’s ‘Cotton Cultivated’ Website

Memphis, TN -  Last year, Cotton Incorporated launched a new website to give the cotton growing community quick and easy access to important cotton information, Cotton Cultivated (cottoncultivated.cottoninc.com).  A new Focus on Cotton webcast titled “Overview of Cotton Incorporated's Cotton Cultivated Website” introduces cotton growers, consultants, and other industry experts to this tool that makes it easy to find cotton-specific information, including:

  •  Daily monitoring data and reports
  • Research results and recommendations
  • News from trusted sources
  • This 6-minute talk by Ryan Kurtz, Director of Agricultural & Environmental Research at Cotton Incorporated, provides information that helps users navigate the website, filter information by region or topic, and quickly locate reliable cotton production information.

    This presentation is available at no charge, courtesy of Cotton Incorporated, through the ‘Focus on Cotton’ webcast resource located at the Plant Management Network, http://www.plantmanagementnetwork.org/foco.  ‘Focus on Cotton’ contains over 35 webcasts on various aspects of cotton crop management. These talks--freely accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week--cover agronomic practices, crop protection, and ag engineering.  This resource also features a new and improved Cotton Extension Search tool, where users can conveniently search for extension resources across all U.S. land-grant universities serving cotton producers.
