US Cotton Trust Protocol Sustainability Project

The goal of this project is to scale involvement and participation in the U.S. Cotton Trust Protocol, such that cotton growers can assess their own practices and identify areas of improvement. Various education and outreach approaches will be utilized, including, but not limited to: master farmer program, train-the-trainer facilitation, and interactive workshops. These efforts will be piloted, and successful methods will be documented and used in other cotton growing states to scale meaningful participation.
