LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - It's that time of year again...time to introduce new cotton technology.
Bayer Crop Science invited area cotton farmers to their annual field day Wednesday, which is catered to introducing crop protection products and biotech traits in cotton.
Farmers are able to pick things that work for them and their crops.
New this year is Glytel Technology, which Bayer says is aggressive technology that farmers can use to spray all season long.
"West Texas and across the area have really struggled with the price of cotton. And with the price of cotton doing what it's doing today, exceeding a dollar in some areas, and on top of that having a tremendous crop out here, it's just a great opportunity for cotton farmers U.S. wide," says Paul Callaghan, global cotton trades manager with Bayer Crop Science.
Bayer says new and better technology in cotton benefits the Lubbock economy, because when farmers have a good crop they can put their dollars into buying necessary equipment.
