    Cotton Marketing News: Tariff Talk

    A tariff is a fee assessed on imports.  The tariff is a per-unit charge that has to be paid to the government by whomever brings the good across the border, and into the country.  Assuming this fee is passed on by the importer, the impact of a tariff is to increase the price of …

    Farmers and ranchers must manage traditional business practices to be successful, but they also deal with the many challenges of ever changing weather.  Rain, wind, and temperature are important and obvious aspects of weather that producers track on a daily basis, but there are other, not so obvious weather features that affect operational management as …

    Still Need the Mandatory Dicamba Resistant Crop Training?

    Last year, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registered new dicamba herbicide product formulations for making applications to dicamba tolerant cotton and soybean crops. As a result, many states were overwhelmed with drift complaints regarding sensitive crops. This led to the 2018 EPA announcement requiring that anyone who wishes to apply dicamba to dicamba tolerant …

    Cotton Marketing News: Ok, Now This is the Number

    On March 29, USDA released their Prospective Plantings report, which in my opinion, gets us much closer to what will eventually be the acres planted in 2018.  The 13½ million acre neighborhood, or even higher, is what has been expected by many observers, and that’s what this report said.

    So, we now have …

    Cotton Marketing News: Pulling the Trigger on the 2018 Crop

    When deer hunting, I am often guilty of waiting and waiting and waiting on something better—often even turning down the opportunity to take a doe, in hopes that something bigger comes along.  I too often end up waiting too long and all the deer just disappear and I don’t even get a doe—nothing for …
