The National Cotton Council will hold a meeting at 9 a.m. March 17 at the Paul D. Camp Community College Work Force Development Center to provide its members with a greater understanding of The Agricultural Act of 2014.

“This new five-year comprehensive farm law includes fundamental changes in cotton’s safety net, a greater reliance on crop insurance products, and will be implemented over the 2014 and 2015 crops,” NCC President/CEO Mark Lange said.

“As with previous farm laws, some of this legislation’s provisions are complex, and the council wants to provide our members with the insight necessary for them to plan accordingly. All producers, cotton industry firms and agribusinesses are encouraged to attend.”
