AgFax Media Adds Weekly Southwest Cotton Report

AgFax.Com - Your Online Ag News Source


AgFax Media LLC, an e-publisher based in Brandon, Mississippi, announced this month the launch of AgFax Southwest Cotton, a new crop and pest advisory covering Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and New Mexico cotton.

The company started its first seasonal crop report in 1991. This marks the fourth AgFax report covering cotton. Related cotton advisories focus on the Southeast, the Midsouth and California. The company also publishes reports on peanut, rice and grain production in the South and almonds and related tree crops in California.

“Launching this new report, AgFax Southwest Cotton, fills in a big portion of the cotton map for us,” says Owen Taylor, AgFax Media Editorial Director and a partner in the company. “This year our California report also will broaden its coverage area to include Arizona, so for the first time we will be gathering information and insights from across the Cotton Belt.”

Larry Stalcup, a veteran ag editor based in Amarillo, Texas, has joined the AgFax team as its Southwest editor. Each week, Stalcup contacts crop advisors and Extension personnel across the four-state region, gathering updates on pest outbreaks and crop conditions. These reports, in turn, are compiled in AgFax Southwest Cotton and distributed by email, generally within 48 hours of the first phone call.

“Our objective with AgFax Southwest Cotton is to be as ‘real time’ as possible with the delivery of field-level reports,” says Taylor. “The information gives farmers and their advisors either an early warning about looming problems or helps them confirm developing trends that affect crop management decisions.”

Subscriptions are free.

About AgFax Media LLC: The company publishes 8 crop and pest reports, including AgFax West, AgFax Midsouth Cotton, AgFax Southeast Cotton and the new AgFax Southwest Cotton. Reports also include AgFax Rice Midsouth/Texas, AgFax Peanuts, AgFax Southern Grain and AgFax Almonds. The company staff feeds daily content to the website, agfax.com, which AgFax Media began in 1998. The site has become a clearing house for ag-related content in states in the Sunbelt and Midwest. Reports also include AgFax Updates, a weekly compilation of ag news and production information, and the recently introduced After Hours series of nightly ag news reports covering cotton, rice, peanuts, grain crops and tree and vine crops. AgFax Media also consults on a regular basis with ag workers on social media trends and has developed blogs for Extension teams at the state and county levels and also for private crop consultants.
