Cotton Trust Protocol Launches Streamline Enrollment


The U.S. Cotton Trust Protocol announced a new streamlined three-year grower enrollment for the 2022 through 2024 crops. The new process is designed to be quick, easy, and efficient, which allows a grower-member’s cotton to enter the supply chain sooner. Dr. Gary Adams, president of the U.S. Cotton Trust Protocol, says they understand the high demands on a grower’s time and listened to producer feedback. “We implemented a more streamlined and efficient enrollment process,” Adams says. “We thank the growers who helped double participation in 2021.” As supply chain membership continues to increase, Adams says they need to collectively ensure there is enough participation in the program to meet demand and that the U.S. continues to be a leader in producing sustainable cotton for markets around the world. Under the new process, Adams says growers should be able to complete all the requirements in one sitting. Data in the program remains secure and confidential.
