Ag Journal August 6th: Uzbekistan Farmers Visit West Texas

KLBK News

It is no secret that West Texas is home to some of the highest quality cotton in the world. The use of cutting edge technology and farming practices is something farmers from around the world try to mimic. 

That is why a group of farmers from Uzbekistan visited West Texas to help advance farming practices in their own country.

The climate and soil composition of West Texas mimics that of different regions in Uzbekistan. Our methods of conservation tillage, use of technology and farming practices make the South Plains an ideal place to learn from some of the best growers in the region. 

The biggest challenge Uzbekistan farmers face is their method of conservation tillage and their irrigation methods are outdated. They waste more water than the plant is able to use. 

With the help of cotton consultants, the group of farmers can go back to Uzbekistan to modify things to help make their operations more successful.
