C.T. Allen, L.E. Smith, L.W. Patton, and R.O. Newman


The Texas Boll Weevil Eradication Foundation (TBWEF) completed a successful year in 2003 with more than 5.7 million acres in 12 active zones in Texas and just over 31,000 acres in four zones in New Mexico. Support from growers, grower organizations, Texas and federal legislators, USDA research and implementation agencies and Texas agricultural research and education agencies, and the Texas Department of Agriculture has grown stronger with continued program success. Retention referenda conducted in four zones 2003 have reaffirmed growers desire to continue the program.
