Cotton growers nailed a goal when they qualified for the new Stoneville® Legacy Club™ with recorded average yields of 1,794 lb/A or higher on at least 20 acres.
“The results achieved by qualifying club members show the strength of the Stoneville brand. Growers chose our science, our varieties, then added their art – the knowledge and skill that maximizes yield and profit potential,” says Jason Wistehuff, U.S. product manager for Stoneville cotton. “Stoneville varieties are known to streak out of the ground, load up with bolls and finish with high yield and high quality. This club offers proof of that performance.”
Congratulations to Bayer’s new Legacy Club members, and thank you to everybody who grows Stoneville cotton varieties.

Ropesville, Texas, Grower Wins 2016 Legacy Club Polaris Ranger XP 1000 EPS
Legacy Club members who attended regional banquets were entered into a drawing for a Polaris Ranger XP 1000 EPS UTV.
The 2016 winner is Randy Smith of Ropesville, Texas.
Consistent variety performance is essential to cotton production. That’s why Randy Smith started growing FiberMax in the late 1990s, and why he added Stoneville to the mix in recent years.
“The quality and consistency of the Bayer products is what kept me coming back over and over,“ Smith says. “I’m a huge Bayer fan.“
