Join us on Monday, October 28, 2019, for a one-day Cotton Farm Tour through the San Joaquin Valley to gain a behind-the-scenes look at the many sides of cotton production. You’ll meet the farmers, see cotton being harvested and learn about Cleaner Cotton™. You’ll visit a perennial hedgerow, walk through a colored cotton field, tour a cotton gin, join us for lunch and take home samples of cotton fiber. Throughout the day industry experts and professionals will present an inside perspective about the many facets of cotton cultivation and processing, addressing issues such as water use, cotton farming practices and the current state of the market for Cleaner Cotton™ fiber.
