RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Nov. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Big yields deserve big recognition. Now in its 13th year, the FiberMax® One Ton Club™ has recognized more than 1,000 elite cotton growers, and signups are now open. Qualified growers who attend the annual banquet in Lubbock, Texas, also can 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 to FiberMax varieties. Additionally, growers must plant 100 percent FiberMax cotton seed on qualifying acres from January 1– December 31, 2017.
"Growers need an advanced skill-set and elite germplasm to produce excellent yields," says Kerry Grossweiler, Bayer campaign manager. "The FiberMax One Ton Club allows us to celebrate a grower's knowledge and accomplishments and applaud them for a job remarkably well done."
If you're a grower in any of the 17 cotton-producing states who meets the four-bale yield requirement, learn how to sign up for the One Ton Club by visiting with your sales rep or Bayer Agronomic Services Team member. Gin recap sheets are required for verification.
