April is here, so farming in the Panhandle is ramping up steadily. Corn, watermelons, and other vegetables are off and growing, and in the coming weeks cotton and then peanuts will be planted. This week’s featured video was published by Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB) to share how cotton is farmed.  This would be a great video to share with people you know through your social media accounts, or with people that visit your farm to show them how cotton is farmed and processed to make all sorts of consumer products.  According to the Cotton Council, one acre of 2-bale cotton can be used to produce 2,434 T-shirts or 430 Pairs of jeans.  I hope this video will help you tell the story of cotton farming in your community and social media networks.
