Deadline to Enroll in U.S. Cotton Trust Protocol Extended to April 30

Deadline to Enroll in U.S. Cotton Trust Protocol Extended to April 30

The U.S. Cotton Trust Protocol announced today that due to demand, the deadline for growers to enroll and complete their data entry for the 2021/22 cotton crop is extended until April 30. 

Launched in 2020, the program was designed to set a new standard in more sustainably grown cotton, ensuring that it contributes to the protection and preservation of the planet, using the most sustainable and responsible techniques. The Trust Protocol is an industry-wide initiative to promote U.S. cotton to brands and retailers as a sustainable fiber produced by growers that strive for continuous improvement. 

“We’ve received a lot of interest in the program recently by U.S. cotton growers and wanted to provide additional time to complete enrollment during what we know is a busy time of year,” said Dr. Gary Adams, president of the U.S. Cotton Trust Protocol. “Additionally, producers who enroll in the program and complete their data entry before the extended deadline will have an opportunity to receive a potential redistribution of program revenue.” 

To aid with enrollment, the Trust Protocol has also rolled out two additional avenues to streamline the process. First, growers can authorize their crop consultant to help ensure that necessary information is entered and accurate. Second, if growers utilize the John Deere Operations Center, they can pre-populate up to 40% of the data needed to complete their Fieldprint analysis through the platform. 

“The Trust Protocol can be a valuable asset to a grower’s operation and the U.S. cotton industry can only succeed if there is participation,” said Barry Evans, a Trust Protocol grower member from Texas. “I would encourage all of my fellow cotton growers to join me in enrolling.”    

To complete online enrollment and data entry growers can visit TrustUSCotton.org before the extended April 30 deadline.
