This week's Cotton Newsline is 3 cuts.All cuts are Robbie Minnich, Senior Government Relations Representative for the National Cotton Council.
Suggested Introduction 1
The NCC extended its appreciation to the Senate Agriculture, Nutrition & Forestry Committee and Chairwoman Stabenow (D-MI) for producing a farm bill that includes provisions supported by the cotton industry. Robbie Minnich, Senior Government Relations Representative for the Council says the Committee's actions will provide U.S. cotton producers with risk management tools that can provide support when conditions occur that are beyond the growers' control.
Suggested Introduction 2
Minnich says agriculture needs some certainty and predictability regarding farm programs when looking at the long-term investments necessary to meet this nation's food and fiber demands.
Suggested Introduction 3
Minnich says the Council is concerned that the Committee-reported bill does not include program choices that meet the needs of rice and peanut growers.
