All U.S. cotton producers are encouraged to respond to the National Cotton Council’s annual survey of 2014 planting intentions.

The survey’s questionnaire was recently distributed to upland and extra-long staple producers across the U.S. Cotton Belt through a combination of regular mail and e-mail with the intent of reaching all cotton farms.

Growers who did not receive a questionnaire may contact the NCC via e-mail at for survey instructions.

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. Survey results will be presented during the Joint Meeting of Program Committees on Saturday morning, Feb. 8.

To enhance the survey’s accuracy, producers are encouraged to respond by the Jan. 17 deadline.
