A reminder to Georgia’s cotton growers to vote in this year’s referendum. It began on February 4, 2013, and will continue through midnight of March 5, 2013.
Ballots should already be received by producers of cotton but anyone who has not received one should call 404.656.3678 to request one. The Commission respectfully urges growers to take this opportunity to cast their vote. A favorable vote of 66 2/3 percent of those producers voting must be received in order for the Commission to continue their programs of research, promotion and education.
The Commission has worked for Georgia Cotton producers since 1965, and every three years must be reaffirmed through a producer vote. It is the Commission’s privilege to work for cotton producers and being excellent stewards of growers’ assessment dollars by investing wisely in programs of research, promotion and education.
Through these programs, the Commission’s objectives are to help Georgia cotton growers produce a high yielding, high quality and profitable crop while raising awareness and demand for cotton and its products.
