University of Arkansas-sponsored webinar set for June 14 at 10 a.m.

How is the U.S. cotton crop looking so far in 2018? What sort of prices can farmers expect and how is the seed cotton program faring?

Those looking for insights into the cotton sector can “attend” a University of Arkansas-sponsored webinar set for June 14 at 10 a.m.

Register for the “2018 Cotton Update and Outlook and Seed Cotton Program Review” webinar.

According to a university release “demand is growing and the situation for the 2018 U.S. crop is highly uncertain due to dry conditions in some parts of the country and delayed planting due to wet conditions in other parts of the country. Prices have now reached 90 cents. The price outlook for the 2018 crop will be discussed and a review and update on the seed cotton program.”

Don Shurley will be the webinar presenter.

“Don Shurley is cotton economist and professor emeritus of cotton economics in the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics, University of Georgia. He is widely published in industry media and websites, is a sought after conference speaker, and author of the Cotton Marketing News newsletter through Southern Cotton Growers.”
