The Brooks County Extension Cotton Marketing Meeting was held on January 19th, 2016, with Dr. Don Shurley. I wanted to share the educational information that I distributed and discussed at this meeting. I am providing links to the 2016 Row Crop Cost Comparison Budget (includes cotton, corn, peanuts, & soybeans), cotton budgets, and Tifton (state) official cotton variety trial (ovt). Currently, the cotton budget posted is from 2015, UGA specialists are waiting on additional information needed to update for 2016. However, there should only be minor changes such as; lower diesel & fertilizer cost, etc… Also, the state official variety trial (ovt) is partially complete but the remainder of the yield trial information should be posted anytime. The links listed below will provide you the most current information available at all times. As information becomes available, the linked sites will be updated immediately and you may refer back for the most current and updated results.
I have not received the UGA 2016 Cotton Production Handbooks. However, as soon as I receive them I will notify all cotton producers so you can pick up or I will be happy to deliver them to you. I have also provided the 2016 On Farm Cotton Variety Trials and a yield performance list that includes a few conventional cotton varieties (the conventional varieties are listed in bold print).
