2015 Cotton, The Problem is .70 Cents Per Pound and Farmers don't want to plant Cotton.
The Simple Solution: Biobased has Grown More (900 lbs Acre) We can double the revenue per acre with production!
In 2015 we had six trails in NC where cotton for years had never exceeded 600lbs acre. To the amazement of the local
gin mill as they got excited as farmers were not growing cotton but other crops as well as NC Cotton Growers Assoication and Cotton Inc. They saw what all the talk was about as they estimated based
on bole count the production of cotton would be over 1700 lbs per are almost triple. And than we got a hurricane
and 20 inches of rain. Most of the farmers didnt havest and took insurance. But one didnt want insurance money
and harvest 800 lbs 200 more pounds than ever before. With the extra 200 lbs he was able to increase his revenue pre
acre still by 17%. Or think of the extra cotton weight giving the cotton farmer 87 cents per pound. Now if that
hurricane didnt come along the farmer would of gotten essentially $2.10 lbs as he was growing 3 times more!
2017 Now we are starting over again and hope to replicate that 300% increse in cotton production per acre.
Cotton Production Down 20 Percent from 2014
All cotton production is forecast at 13.1 million 480-pound bales, down 20 percent from last year. Yield is expected to
average 795 pounds per harvested acre, down 43 pounds from last year. Upland cotton production is forecast at
