NCC Conducting Farm Bill Education Meetings

The National Cotton Council has scheduled 45 informational meetings in 15 Cotton Belt states during March 17-25 to provide its members with a greater understanding of The Agricultural Act of 2014. NCC President/CEO Mark Lange said, “This new five-year comprehensive farm law includes fundamental changes in cottonʼs safety net, a greater reliance on crop insurance products, and will be implemented over the 2014 and 2015 crops. As with previous farm laws, some of this legislation ʼs provisions are complex, and the Council wants to provide our members with the insight necessary for them to plan accordingly. All producers, cotton industry firms and agribusinesses are encouraged to attend any of these important meetings.”
