The application deadline for the FiberMax One Ton Club is February 29, 2024. Printed qualification forms were mailed to FiberMax growers in October, and applications can also be submitted online. Qualifying growers who attend the FiberMax One Ton Club members banquet in Lubbock, Texas, on April 4, 2024, can enter for a chance to win a two-year lease on a Ford Super Duty F-350 Lariat truck.

“The FiberMax One Ton Club is one our favorite long-standing traditions at BASF,” says Bryan Perry, BASF Head of Seeds & Traits – U.S. Agricultural Solutions. “For nearly two decades we’ve been celebrating cotton growers and their high-yield achievements – a feat we know isn’t always easy. These individuals literally put the ‘ton’ in ‘cotton,’ and we can’t wait to celebrate their accomplishments this spring.”
