Chinese delegation visits west Tennessee farm and gin

A group of touring Chinese cotton industry representatives climbed aboard a cotton picker with on-board module builder, inspected round cotton modules moving down a conveyor ramp and watched the ginning and baling process at the farm and gin of Richard Kelley, Burlison, Tenn.

The visit is part of the U.S.-China Cotton Leadership Exchange Program established by the NCC and the Chinese Cotton Association (CCA) in 2006. The visits are in accordance with a signed memorandum of understanding between the NCC and CCA that promises cooperation between the countries’ cotton industries.
