ACE Provides Harvest Tips
http://www.cotton.org/tech/ace/index.cfm

National Cotton Council producer members are reminded they can access a
wealth of production resources under the NCC's "Advancing Cotton
Education" (ACE) program. This NCC initiative at
http://www.cotton.org/tech/ace/index.cfm is aimed at providing producers
help with crop production decision-making, including harvest management
decisions.

Supported by the Cotton Foundation, ACE includes many components,
including the Cotton Physiology Today newsletters. Relying on researchers
and Extension cotton specialists to help develop and assist in the
dissemination of this information to the decision-makers, ACE utilizes
current technology to allow for more interactive information delivery.
That includes audio and video clips to educate and/or demonstrate
techniques or to identify situations of interest.
