BWCC 2020 to provide insight on latest research & tech
The 2020 Beltwide Cotton Conferences (BWCC), set for January 8-10, 2020, at JW Marriott in Austin, Texas, will update attendees on latest research and technology. The forum helps US cotton industry members tailor new products and production/processing systems to their operations for maximum efficiency. BWCC is coordinated by the National Cotton Council (NCC).

The event annually brings together university and USDA researchers, extension personnel/agents, consultants, and industry sales/support personnel.

The 2020 BWCC will begin at noon on January 8 with the half-day Cotton Consultants Conference – open to all attendees. Among topics selected by the consultant community for consideration on the 2020 programme are: an expert panel of entomologists to discuss timely topics ranging from BT resistance to results of testing Bollgard 4. Among other key issues receiving a focus will be water restrictions, including the status of aquifers across the Cotton Belt; an update on precision agriculture technology; a discussion of EPA’s role in the plant protection chemicals’ review and registration processes; and a briefing on a multi-state potash study.

The 10 BWCC cotton technical conferences, which will provide updates on research and current/emerging technology, will meet concurrently beginning on the morning of January 9 and conclude by noon on January 10.

The Engineering-Systems Conference will feature presentations on sustainability and contamination prevention while the Economics Conference will cover such topics as crop insurance, disaster assistance and trade. The Ginning Conference will continue to provide a focus on efficient processing/maintaining quality fibre along with updates regarding ongoing ginning research, ginning efficiencies, new equipment, and lint contamination prevention/research.

Beginning on the afternoon of January 8, multiple committees of the National Cotton Ginners Association will hold meetings. Among other topics to be covered in the technical sessions are results from breeding and variety trials, research looking at the relationship between plants and water; and cotton’s competitive advantage over synthetic fabrics.
