COORDINATION OF COTTON ENGINEERING AND GINNNG RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER.

Ed M. Barnes, Cotton Incorporated

Many of the projects sponsored by Cotton Incorporated cover multiple scientific disciplines and are conducted across the United States. The main objective of this project is to provide resources to synthesis the outcomes from projects that address different aspects of a related problem and apply an engineering systems approach to the solution. In 2012, the focus was to communicate a broad range of cotton water management issues that were the subject of several projects over the last five years. This was partially accomplished with the publication of a 60-page reference document on cotton irrigation management in humid regions that captured the knowledge of 20 experts and was also delivered in a Web format on Cotton Incorporated's Web site. Topics included: benefits of irrigation; importance of proper water management; cotton's water requirements; water sensitive growth stages; management tools; and an overview of different deliver systems (e.g., drip versus pivot). An irrigation workshop was also conducted in 2012 as part of the Crop Management Seminar on November 7 in Tunica, Mississippi. All of the presentations from the seminar were recorded and are available as webinars on Cotton Incorporated's Web site.
