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.

Watch the story from Charles Denney from the Univeristy of Tennessee’s Ag Center on AgDay above.

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?

It seems technology has caught up to the particular pest, however, I wish we in the tree industry could say the same for emerald ash borers. I have a number of tree service companies across the country that can't keep up with the damage these evil pests are causing.

There are always new problems farmers face. Many times they see different pests and weeds popping up in their crops. Also after using the same ag chemicals for so long sometimes the weeds can become immune to chemicals. Thanks for sharing this information!

My grandfather was a farmer and I remember as a little kid seeing all the challenges he faced. They are always trying to stay one step ahead of mother nature, but I'm thankful every day for farmers.
