    Signup is now open for the new Stoneville Legacy Club, which celebrates the history of Stoneville and growers who make 3-plus bales with Stoneville varieties. Growers qualifying for the Legacy Club and who also attend their local Legacy Club event have a chance to win a Polaris Ranger XP 1000 EPS.

    How do you qualify for the Stoneville Legacy Club?

    Signup is now open. Growers must average 1,794 lb/acre on 20 acres or more planted to Stoneville seed. That may seem like an odd numbers, but the 1,794-pound yield requirement celebrates the year in which Eli Whitney patented the cotton gin, which revolutionized the cotton industry.

    Local events across the cotton belt in the spring of 2017 will recognize the Stoneville Legacy Club inaugural members. At these events, growers can enter to win the Polaris Ranger XP 1000 EPS, and after all events are concluded, the name of one winner will be drawn.

    Stoneville cotton seed must be planted on 100% of qualifying acres between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016, and club qualification is open to all 17 cotton-producing states. Growers are encouraged to contact their local Bayer sales rep or agronomic services representative to learn how to sign up, and visit for more information.
