National Cotton Council President and CEO Dr. Gary Adams is pleased with the first ever virtual Beltwide Cotton Conferences this week.
“Attendance was really quite strong,” said Adams in a wrap up interview. “Hopefully, we actually provided an opportunity for some people to participate where they might not have otherwise.”
Adams gave an update on the U.S. Cotton Trust Protocol during the sustainability conference. “We are trying to stress to growers that the success of this program is necessary so that continue to have access to all the marketing channels that we can going forward. It is an important part of not just maintaining but growing the demand base for U.S. cotton.”
In this interview, Adams also takes a look back at 2020 and how it impacted the cotton industry, as well as a look forward to working with a new administration.
