Plains Cotton Growers Inc.
Annual Report — 2023
As cotton’s advocate since 1956, we’re on the front lines so producers can stay in the fields. We serve our mission through legislative activities, research objectives, promotion and service.
PCG helps develop key legislative programs and rules from implementation at the state and national level. We also advocate on behalf of producers on many issues including the Farm Bill, trade issues, State and Federal Agriculture Appropriations, crop insurance reform and improvement, and conservation.
Relationships between PCG, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, Texas A&M AgriLife Research, Cotton Incorporated, universities and numerous others have helped establish High Plains cotton as a valued player in the world market. PCG’s producer-funded Plains Cotton Improvement Program supports various research efforts designed to improve our product for years to come.
PCG interacts with international cotton buyers through programs of Cotton Council International, Cotton Incorporated and the National Cotton Council. We are involved in numerous educational and promotional events on behalf of Texas High Plains cotton. Our goal is to ensure that all segments understand the importance of cotton to the economy overall and everyone’s quality of life.
We serve our producers and the cotton industry through political advocacy, industry communications, education, research coordination, public relations and so much more.
Never give up!
“Without commitment, you'll never start, but, more importantly, without consistency, you'll never finish. Keep working, keep striving, never give up, fall down seven times, get up eight...ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship. So keep moving, keep growing, keep learning.”Denzel Washington
