Why cotton matters to us


The demand for cotton is huge: shirts, curtains, kitchen towels, jeans, and bed sheets, not to mention bandages, diapers, candlewicks, coffee filters and even banknotes. We help farmers meet this demand with our high-performing cotton seed From these seeds grow plants with fibers that match the needs of cotton processors. Fine yarn is spun from cotton fibers, with quality determined by length, gauge, color and any impurities. Processors prefer fibers to be all the same length, strength and quality. After separation from the fiber, the remaining seeds and linter (very short hair fibers) find multiple uses, such as for pulp, ropes, oils, fuels and – of course – seeds for planting
