Adobe Walls gin aims to become largest ginnery in US

The Adobe Walls gin in Texas is hoping to become the largest ginnery in the United States. The Texas gin is in the process of expanding its ginning capacity to meet the increasing demand of cotton. The production of cotton in the United States is likely to increase 21 per cent from last year, according to the United States Department of Agriculture.

Apart from the current expansion process, another phase of construction will increase its ginning capacity, said Jerrell Key, general manager for Adobe Walls, according to the media. The expansion will help to meet the increasing demand for cotton. The gin is now in the process of $14.5 million expansion with four new lines. In an attempt to produce cotton in 12.2 million acres, Adobe Walls gin intends to double its current capacity of ginning about 1,000-1,100 bales a day.

"Our biggest obstacle is getting new growers and getting people comfortable with growing it," said Key. (RR)
