NCC Calls For Disaster Assistance

The National Cotton Council (NCC), Memphis, Tenn., joined with 35 other farm groups to ask Congress and the Bush administration for relief aid to counter the effects of weather-related disasters in 2001 and 2002. The coalition maintains the relief must come from emergency funds and not from farm program cuts.

Projected 2002 cotton production fell short by more than 1 million bales because of droughts during the growing season and storms during harvest. Compared to a five-year average of 81 percent, only 55 percent of the Southeast and Mid-South crop earned a color grade of Strict Low Middling or better.
