The National Cotton Council is hosting four regional webinars to provide growers with information about the new Stacked Income Protection Plan or STAX in the Agricultural Act of 2014 or the new farm bill.
The webinars are a follow-up to the regional workshops conducted by Council staff members at locations across the Cotton Belt in recent weeks. Each of the webinars will include regional examples of insurance rates, county yields and information regarding farm programs.
Two webinars are scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 17 – one designed for the Southeast region from 9-11 a.m. CST (10 a.m.-noon EST) and one for the Mid-South region from 2-4 p.m. CST. The two webinars set for Thursday, Dec. 18 are for the Southwest region from 9-11 a.m. CST and for the Western region from noon-2 p.m. MST (11 a.m.-1 p.m. PST).
NCC President/CEO Mark Lange said cotton producers, other cotton industry members and agribusiness personnel unable to attend any of the NCC’s 25 workshops that were just completed across the Cotton Belt or those who want additional information are encouraged to participate in one of the webinar sessions.
