The article informs that Southeast High Cotton winners focus on strip-till, environment. It is obvious that the High Cotton winners from the Southeast like what they're doing because most have continued to farm since receiving their bronze cotton boll awards in the first 10 years of the program. Most have continued to rely on minimum- till and strip-till primarily to help to increase production and their soil and water. Transgenic cotton varieties, both Roundup Ready and stacked gene, are also playing a key role in their conservation efforts. Phil Sandifer, the 1996 winner, has quit planting cotton, but continues to farm. When he won the award, he had 1,200 acres of cotton and was noted for both his production and protection of the environment.
