On Thursday’s edition of Lubbock’s First News, Tom Collins and Laura Mac visited with Mary Jane Berkley of Plans Cotton Growers.
Buerkle stated early crop production estimates show West Texas harvesting over 4.4 million bales of cotton. She believes that should those estimates prove true it could be on of the largest crops ever despite continued drought-like conditions. In 2010 the region’s farmers produced 5.2 million bales. Buerkle added that the timeliness of the rain is a key factor in production. Buerkle stated Lubbock County is consistently in the top ten when it comes to cotton production numbers.
Buerkle also reminded those interested in the cotton industry that Plains Cotton Growers has partnered with Texas Tech Athletics to sponsor the “Cotton Game”. Saturday, September 13, when the Red Raiders play host to University of Arkansas, PCG and several other vendors will help celebrate the regions commitment to cotton and to support Tech football. Those interested in attending the game can purchase reserved individual games tickets by logging on to the Tech Athletic web site, and entering the code “cotton”.
