The article presents information on Taylor Slade the president of the North Carolina Cotton Producer's Association. Slade carries with him the knowledge of what will benefit cotton growers, what bears watching and what needs improvement. First and foremost is the ever-important issue of quality. It's always been important, but with the added emphasis of having to sell overseas, it's even more important. Slade believes it's not a one-state issue in the Southeast. If they get a reputation for poor-quality cotton in the Southeast, it can roll right up the line to North Carolina and other states. There were two reasons for the cotton revival in North Carolina, One was the consumption increase in the U.S. Second, the boll weevil eradication program.
