Each year, cotton growers enter the ring to battle agronomic challenges. However, some growers who fight these issues have an additional challenger – dryland. The annual FiberMax® Maximizer Club™ recognizes dryland growers for their level of accomplishment in producing half-ton yields, and signups are now open. Qualified growers who attend the Maximizer Club event also can enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win a Polaris Ranger XP 1000 EPS.
“Growers put their trust, hard work and knowledge into the hands of high-performing FiberMax varieties. The Maximizer Club allows us to celebrate that confidence and give credit where credit is rightfully due,” adds Jason Wistehuff, U.S. product manager for FiberMax cotton.
Last year, the highest yield recorded was 1,533 lb/A on a farm in Sudan, Texas. Additionally, a grower in Taft, Texas, came in with the highest loan value, garnering $0.575. Across the Cotton Belt, growers are pushing their yields to the max and increasing profit potential with high-performing FiberMax varieties.
“Understanding dryland production is commendable. Mastering dryland production is exceptional,” adds Kerry Grossweiler, Bayer campaign manager. “For the second year in a row, we look forward to applauding those elite growers for their tough effort and dedication.”
If you live in any of the 17 cotton-producing states and produce 1,000 lb/A on 20 or more dryland acres, visit your local sales rep or Bayer Agronomic Services Team member to sign up for the Maximizer Club. Entered acres must be registered in the Certified FiberMax Cotton® program, and gin recap sheets are required to verify 1,000 pounds per acre.
Qualifiers will be recognized at the Maximizer Club grower awards banquet in Lubbock, Texas, on April 4, 2018, where they will have the opportunity to enter to win the Polaris UTV. Growers must be present to enter and win the sweepstakes.
