Bayer CropScience and FiberMax cotton invite growers to enter the FiberMax One Ton Club for 2013 to be recognized for their outstanding achievements in their fields and receive exclusive member benefits.
To qualify for the One Ton Club, growers must produce a minimum of 2,000 pounds of ginned cotton per acre on at least 20 acres planted with FiberMax cotton seed. Both first-time One Ton Club qualifiers and past members need to enter for membership into the 2013 One Ton Club class.
Growers can submit entrance forms until March 1, 2014. Forms are available at local gins, through Bayer CropScience sales reps and online.
All members from 2013 will be recognized at the One Ton Club Grower Awards Banquet on April 3, 2014. Banquet attendees will receive special FiberMax One Ton Club apparel and gifts and have a chance to win a two-year lease on a Ford Super Duty F-350 King Ranch truck.
Since the program’s inception, growers have produced One Ton Club yields with 29 different FiberMax varieties. Last year, 197 FiberMax cotton growers achieved high yields, including a Texas grower who produced 2,910 pounds per acre and a gross loan value of $1,579 per acre.
