Over 500 registered this year for the Southern Southeastern Annual Meeting. The meeting held each January is an opportunity for the members of Southern Cotton Growers and Southeastern Cotton Ginners Association (Southern Southeastern) to come together for fellowship and education. All cotton producers are members of Southern.
This year’s meeting covered a WIDE range of topics from the Dwarf Leaf Roll Virus to Crop Insurance to H-2A to cotton seed storage to contamination. There were two general sessions and two concurrent technical sessions split between grower and ginner interests. Some of the speakers included newly appointed US Senator Kelly Loeffler, John Mitchell from Choice Cotton, Derek Whitelock with USDA, Adam Kantrovitch with Clemson and many many more. All told nearly 25 people presented over the two and a half days of the meetings.
In coming days, we will be posting the presentations on either this page, Southern Southeastern’s page or possibly both. Please watch your emails for links or give us a call with a request for a specific presentation if you need it sooner.
