Dan Cotton, Georgia

Georgia Cotton CommissionEfforts continue to help producers with a cottonseed designation. According to the National Cotton Council (NCC), in recent testimony before the House Agriculture Committee’s Subcommittee on General Farm Commodities and Risk Management, NCC Chairman Ronnie Lee from Bronwood, Ga. said, “cotton must be brought back into the farm law’s Title I commodity policy as it is the only program crop that does not have any long-term price or revenue protection policy in the farm bill.” Lee also told the representatives that the U.S. cotton industry still is seeking to get cottonseed designated as a covered commodity. And Georgia Cotton Commission’s Richey Seaton says the commission continues to work with the NCC on a cottonseed initiative.
