 Registration for 2021 Beltwide Cotton Conferences Now Open The 2021 Beltwide Cotton Conferences' final program is now available under the 2021 Beltwide Details icon of the BWCC home page, www.cotton.org/beltwide where participants can register for this virtual forum aimed at speeding the transfer of new technology to U.S. cotton producers and other industry members. As previously announced, the NCC will conduct the 2021 BWCC virtually on January 5-7 (Tuesday-Thursday) due to continued concerns regarding COVID-19ís spread.

Registration costs for the 2021 BWCC have been reduced due to the virtual format: $180 for NCC/Cotton Foundation members, university and USDA researchers, extension personnel, associations and consultants; $500 for non-U.S. research, extension, associations, and consultants; $350 for non-NCC/Foundation members; and $75 for students. Registration will continue after the virtual 2021 BWCC concludes to permit registered participants access to the eventís on-demand content.

The 2021 BWCC will begin at 8 a.m. on January 5 with the half-day Cotton Consultants Conference which is open to all attendees. Among topics planned for that session are a National Weather Service discussion of prediction models/long range forecasting as well as university cotton physiologists describing weather modelsí influence on cotton physiology decisions including growth regulator use and leaf shed practices. EPA officials will review the availability status of dicamba and other plant protection chemistries, and a panel will discuss Bt resistance management and EPAís new proposed requirements. Participants also will get an update on cotton leafroll dwarf virus and product updates from various agribusiness companies.

The 11 BWCC cotton technical conferences, which now include the Cotton Sustainability Conference, will provide updates on research and current/emerging technology. Those sessions will meet concurrently beginning on the afternoon of January 5 and conclude by 5 p.m. on January 7.

The NCC-coordinated BWCC annually brings together university and USDA researchers, regulatory agencies, extension personnel/agents, consultants, and industry sales/support personnel to exchange information about new products and production/processing systems that can be tailored to individual farming operations for maximum efficiency.
