This week’s Cotton Newsline is 3 cuts. All cuts are Mid-South Producers who participated in the Southeast Producer Information Exchange Program.
Suggested Introduction 1:
The National Cotton Council just completed this year’s Southeast Producer Information Exchange Program or PIE Tour. Select producers from the Mid-South traveled to both North and South Carolina to observe operations of their peers. Producer Dustin Jackson from Seenith, MO says the PIE Tour was a great opportunity to visit with producers in a different region.
Suggested Introduction 2:
Graham Hollister with CoCo Planting and Avon Gin Company in Avon, Mississippi enjoyed seeing the diversification of the farmers in the Southeast.
Suggested Introduction 3:
Dan Arant with Lindamood Planting Company and Phoenix Gin Company in Tiptonville, TN says producers in the Southeast have different problems than what he deals with at home.
The producers who participated in the tour look forward to improving their operations from the new perspectives they gained from the Southeast Region
