ICAC will have a virtual meeting on November 29 to December 1, 2022.
The theme will be regenerative agriculture. Because the ICAC is of the opinion that research is the lifeblood of the cotton industry’s development, a session at every plenary meeting is dedicated to a technical topic.
For the upcoming plenary meeting, that topic is how regenerative agriculture can contribute to a sustainable cotton industry. There will be presentations on soil organic carbon and soil health and improving cotton’s sustainability in the tropics. After the presentations are complete, there will be a discussion regarding the topic of the 2023 technical seminar session.
Formed in 1939, the International Cotton Advisory Committee (ICAC) is an association of cotton producing, consuming and trading countries. It acts as a catalyst for change by helping member countries maintain a healthy world cotton economy, provides transparency to the world cotton market by serving as a clearinghouse for technical information on cotton production and serves as a forum for discussing cotton issues of international significance.
In addition, members can take advantage of the ICAC’s global network of cotton researchers, whose expertise covers the supply chain from farm to textile manufacturing, and have free access to its cutting-edge technologies like the voice-based app and virtual technology cotton training program.
