Tennessee Cotton Farmers Playing a Money Game

3/28/18 Tennessee Cotton

With strong cotton prices, Tennessee farmers are preparing to plant an increased amount of cotton this spring, roughly 1.5 percent by taking acres away from corn and wheat.

Tennessee farmers are going into the fields knowing a major threat no longer exists—boll weevils.

While this pest is gone, there are still plenty of other challenges farmers face.

First, thank God the weevils are gone. However, with farmers taking a more aggressive approach to planting cotton, what does that mean for the consumers in regards to corn and wheat prices?
