The article reports that the "Grower Hedging With Cotton Options" seminars will help cotton producers increase their understanding of what options on futures contracts are, and what they can do to increase their profits. This year, the seminars will be conducted in central locations all across the entire Cotton Belt and a total of five locations have been selected to host it. The seminar sessions will cover the basics of cotton futures and options, specific hedging strategies involving the use of cotton options contracts, and an overall review of cotton's market outlook. Primary instructors for the seminars are Judy Ganes and Eric Matson with additional speakers at each of the events intended. There is no cost for producers to attend the seminars, as it is covered by their assessment investment in the Cotton Incorporated Research and Promotion Program.
