Cotton Newsletter

In order to promote cotton production in New Mexico, a Cotton Newsletter publication was initiated in April 2010. This newsletter is a follow-up to the Cotton Task Force Meeting that took place in August 2009, to address the declining production of Cotton in New Mexico. This publication is tri-annual, and is sponsored by the Cooperative Extension Service of the New Mexico State University (NMSU) and the New Mexico Cotton Growers Association. The Cotton Newsletter is targeted towards providing current production information for cotton growers, educators and other stakeholders in cotton industry.

Each edition of the Cotton Newsletter can be downloaded from this site.
