Over-regulation amazes south Plains farmersJul 26, 2013
If there was one thing that struck a chord with a group of cotton growers from the southern Plains states of Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas touring California recently it was the incredible amount of regulations California farmers must deal with on a daily basis to produce food and fiber.
Hosted by the National Cotton Council, cotton growers from various regions of the United States are touring other cotton regions this summer to see what their peers are up to. Sponsored by Bayer CropScience through a grant to The Cotton Foundation, the Producer Information Exchange, or P.I.E. Program, is now in its 25th year of helping U.S. cotton producers maximize on-farm efficiency programs.
