FLORENCE (GaeaTimes.com)- Weevil problems will no more be a bugging issue for the cotton growers in South Carolina. The administration of the state has decided to help out the cotton cultivators of the state by organizing a meeting at the Clemson University’s Pee Dee Research and Education Center in Florence, on December 14, at 10 AM.

This meeting has been initiated by the Clemson University, with the help of S.C. Boll Weevil Eradication Foundation, the Clemson University Cooperative Extension Service, USDA Farm Service Agency, the Southeast Boll Weevil Eradication Program and Clemson University Regulatory Services. The USDA, will address the cotton growers in the meeting and provide them with information on the new production techniques of cotton, that would enable the plants to overcome the environmental and climatic hazards. The cotton planters in South Carolina have been facing a lot of trouble as changes in climatic conditions have often resulted in unsuccessful cultivation and bankruptcy. The experts from these organizations will also give them tips on strategic use of financial means in order to get the optimum profit. The planters can discuss their cultivation related problems and take personal counseling from the experts at the meeting. The meeting aims to nullify the cultivation oriented challenges faced by the farmers in the field and offer them full support, to make them prosper at the end of each cultivation season.

This meeting can be attended by cotton cultivators from all over United States. Mr David Howle, assistant director of Clemson University Regulatory Services feels that this is a great measure that is being taken by the Southeast Boll Weevil Eradication Program and Clemson University Regulatory Services.
