What do 860 pair of jeans, 4,868 T-shirts and 400 growers have in common? They all make one ton of cotton. Bayer CropScience and FiberMax® cotton invite you to join more than 400 growers who are members of the FiberMax One Ton Club™. Entries are now being accepted for the One Ton Club Class of 2012.
Growers can submit their qualification forms between Nov. 1, 2012 and March 1, 2013. Forms are available at local gins, through Bayer CropScience sales reps and online at http://www.FiberMax.com. Both first-time One Ton Club qualifiers and past members need to submit qualification forms for membership in the 2012 One Ton Club class.
To qualify for the One Ton Club, growers must produce 2,000 pounds or more of lint cotton per acre on at least 20 acres planted to FiberMax cotton seed. Members will be recognized at a banquet in April 2013 and have a chance to win a two-year lease on a Ford® Super Duty® F-350 King Ranch® truck. They also receive special FiberMax One Ton Club apparel and gifts.
“Growers who produce one ton of high-quality FiberMax cotton per acre continue to raise the bar for U.S. cotton production, and the FiberMax One Ton Club is a way to celebrate their achievement,” said Jeff Brehmer, U.S. marketing manager for FiberMax. “These growers combine innovative production practices with high-yielding FiberMax germplasm for industry leading yields and quality.”
For the 2011 season, 103 growers qualified for the FiberMax One Ton Club with the highest yield topping more than 6 bales to the acre. Growers have achieved One Ton Club yields with 27 FiberMax varieties.
