The Following is from Harrison Ashley at the National Cotton Ginners. We encourage ALL gins to participate in this survey to drive the accuracy of the NCC planting intentions forward. Thanks for you help in this.
To allow the NCC to have the most complete planting intentions information, gins are being asked to participate in a short confidential online survey. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RM9BRWB
Gins are in constant contact with their producers and generally have a good idea as to the next season’s planting prospects. The survey should include both upland and extra-long staple cotton plantings. The gin survey will be used to supplement producer survey data and help the National Cotton Council increase survey accuracy. Please complete the survey by Monday, January 17. If you report for more than 1 gin, please use a separate survey for each gin.
The acreage survey, conducted each year to aid with industry planning and policy deliberations, provides the basis for the economic outlook presented to delegates during the NCC Annual Meeting in February.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
