    Focus on Cotton: New Site Offers 24-7 On-Demand Webinars

    AgFax.Com - Your Online Ag News Source

    From a Press Release

    Growers and crop consultants across the Cotton Belt now have a new and freely accessible resource to “focus on” this year. Focus on Cotton, a crop management resource that features monthly webcasts from noted experts in the cotton industry.

    This new resource is a joint effort of Cotton Incorporated and the Plant Management Network (PMN), a nonprofit publisher of science-based crop management information for growers, consultants, and other applied audiences.“Growers, consultants and researchers lead busy lives and don’t always have time to attend meetings to learn about the latest advances in cotton research,” said Ryan Kurtz, Director of Agricultural and Environmental Research at Cotton Incorporated and chair of the Focus on Cotton editorial committee. “Development of these open access webcasts allows anyone to go online at their convenience to stay current on the latest research developments.”

    The central feature of Focus on Cotton is its 24/7 on-demand webcasts. Throughout 2013, these audio-visual presentations will offer practical information and guidance in various areas of crop management, including weeds, nutrients, irrigation, diseases, and insects.  Collectively, they will apply to all areas of the U.S. where cotton is grown.

    The site is now online and available for viewing here, with the latest webinars posted including:

    1.     Basics of Cotton Defoliation.
    2.     Why yield mapping is important.
    3.     How to handle round modules in the field and gin.
    4.     Preparing pickers, strippers for harvest, plus best practices for storing seed cotton via our harvest systems.
