Big yields deserve big recognition: Now in its 14th year, the FiberMax® One Ton Club™ has recognized more than 1,000 elite cotton growers, and sign-ups are now open for the next crop of high-yielding growers. Qualified growers who attend the annual banquet in Lubbock, Texas, on April 4, 2019, can also enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win a two-year lease on a Ford® F-350 Super Duty King Ranch truck.
To qualify for the FiberMax One Ton Club, growers must produce an average of 2,000 lb/A on 20 or more acres planted with FiberMax varieties. Additionally, growers must plant 100 percent FiberMax cotton seed on qualifying acres from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2018. All sweepstakes entries must be submitted by March 15, 2019.
“In order to produce excellent yields, growers need an advanced skill set and excellent germplasm,” says Malin Westfall, Head of U.S. Cotton at BASF. “BASF recognizes FiberMax growers for their accomplishments, and the challenge they take on to produce high yields.”
Growers in any of the 17 cotton-producing states who meet the four-bale yield requirement, can sign up for the One Ton Club and learn more about the participation conditions by visiting FiberMax.com/OTC, or by contacting their BASF Seed Advisor or Agronomic Services Team member.
