Suggested Introduction 1:
The National Cotton Council Producer Information Exchange Tour, also known as the P.I.E. tour, allows producers from the Southwest and West to experience cotton and other agriculture related operations in Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi.
To date NCC’s P.I.E. tours have allowed more than 1,200 U.S. cotton producers to see innovative production practices in Cotton Belt regions different than their own since the program was launched in 1989. Sponsored by BASF Agricultural Solutions through a grant to The Cotton Foundation, the P.I.E. tour aims to help the cotton producers boost their farming efficiency.
