LUBBOCK, TEXAS (December 21, 2010) - Bayer CropScience is looking for top cotton growers to join its FiberMax® One Ton Club™ Class of 2010. Growers can submit their qualification form between Nov. 1, 2010 and March 1, 2011. Forms are available at local gins, through Bayer CropScience sales representatives and online at www.FiberMax.com.
Both first-time One Ton Club qualifiers and past members who qualify with their 2010 crop need to submit qualification forms for membership in the 2010 One Ton Club class.
Growers qualify for the One Ton Club by producing 2,000 pounds or more of lint cotton per acre on at least 20 acres planted to FiberMax cotton seed. Members will be recognized at a banquet in March and have a chance to win a two-year lease on a Ford® Super Duty® F-350 King Ranch® truck. They also receive special FiberMax One Ton Club apparel and gifts.
“Bayer CropScience recognizes the dedication and success of growers who produce one ton of high-quality FiberMax cotton per acre, and the One Ton Club is a way to celebrate their achievement,” said Jeff Brehmer, U.S. FiberMax and Stoneville® marketing manager.
Bayer CropScience has inducted 308 growers since establishing the One Ton Club in 2005, and will honor the 2010 One Ton Club class in Lubbock, Texas, on March 31, 2011.
