The NCC’s annual survey of 2013 planting intentions has been mailed to upland and extra-long staple (ELS) cotton producers across the Cotton Belt.

The survey, conducted each year to aid with industry planning and policy deliberations, provides the basis for the economic outlook presented to delegates during the NCC Annual Meeting in Memphis, Tenn.

Survey results will be presented during the Joint Meeting of Program Committees on Saturday morning, Feb. 9.

To enhance the survey’s accuracy, producers are encouraged to respond by the Jan. 16 deadline.

The current survey has been distributed through a combination of regular mail and e-mail with the intent of reaching all cotton farms across the Belt.

Growers who do not receive a survey may contact the NCC via email at for survey instructions.
