Greater flexibility with Cotton Choices™

Match your Cotton Choices™ with your yield by field

Cotton Choices™ gives Bollgard® 3, Bollgard II® and Roundup Ready® Flex growers flexibility to choose the best payment option for their technology fees, to suit the financial and production risks of their farm.

Opt for a flat, up-front discount or delay your decision until you can get a better understanding of your expected yields and pay on a per-hectare or per-bale basis.

You can even ‘hedge your bets’ and choose different options for different fields based on their expected yields and production risks.

You can select your Cotton Choices™ based on the yield potential of each field rather than one across your whole farm.

Try the calculator to compare the technology fee and payment dates associated with different scenarios or Cotton Choices™ selections by field.

More time to confirm your decision

If you select Cotton Choices™ 2: Late Crop Removal or Cotton Choices™ 3: End Point Royalty you have until 20 January 2017 (Central Queensland) or  17 February 2017 (Southern Queensland and New South Wales) to switch between them.

If, for example, excellent seasonal conditions mean you’re likely to achieve above-average yields, you can switch from Cotton Choices™ 3: End Point Royalty to Cotton Choices™ 2: Late Crop Removal and potentially reduce your technology fees. On the other hand, if your crop is worth keeping in the ground but looks like it will only produce below average yields, you can switch the other way.

Try the calculator to compare the technology fee and payment dates associated with different scenarios.

“The Cotton Choices™ End Point Royalty and changes to licensing have made dryland cotton very attractive. We can now budget at the beginning of the season, knowing that we only pay for what we grow.”
