Building on an investment their forefathers made over 50 years ago, today’s Panhandle/High Plains cotton farmer has the strength of one of the most respected regional cotton producer organizations in the United States at their fingertips. In fact, farmers responsible for producing over 90 percent of the cotton grown in this part of Texas are working together to support one of the most responsive and dynamic producer organizations ever created –– Plains Cotton Growers, Inc.
As a result of its broad grassroots support, PCG has met the specialized needs of the High Plains cotton industry for more than 60 years and provides effective input on key cotton issues at the very highest levels of federal and state government
PCG works hard to maintain a broad understanding of the cotton landscape nationally and internationally. PCG leaders are quick to do their share when it comes to the formulation and implementation of cotton industry policy and PCG works closely with the National Cotton Council of America and the NCC’s producer arm – American Cotton Producers. Through the combined efforts of the NCC and PCG, High Plains cotton producers can rest assured that their views are taken seriously and that their interests are being represented at the very highest levels.
With an ever-increasing workload and the strain of keeping their operations moving in the right direction, cotton producers are often unable to keep abreast of the latest issues. Knowing that there is an effective organization “on-call” to quickly respond to issues as they arise eases some of that strain and allows growers to concentrate on the details of their own farming operation.
For over 60 years cotton growers in the Panhandle/High Plains region have supported the organization they founded. The investment cotton producers make in Plains Cotton Growers is an investment in their future and will make it possible to have PCG on their side for decades to come.
Since 1956, PCG has been there, in the trenches, as the advocate for the High Plains cotton producer.
