LUBBOCK, Texas, Feb. 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Each season,
FiberMax® cotton seed produces high yields and a new class of FiberMax One Ton
Club™ members. Bayer CropScience and FiberMax cotton invite growers to enter
the One Ton Club to be recognized for their outstanding achievements and

Growers can submit entrance forms until March 1, 2014. To qualify for the One
Ton Club, growers must produce a minimum of 2,000 pounds of ginned cotton per
acre on at least 20 acres planted with FiberMax cotton seed. Both first-time
One Ton Club qualifiers and past members need to enter for membership into the
2013 One Ton Club class. Entrance forms are available at local gins, through
Bayer CropScience sales reps and online at http://www.FiberMax.com.

2013 members will be recognized at the One Ton Club Grower Awards Banquet on
April 3, 2014. Banquet attendees will receive special FiberMax One Ton Club
apparel and gifts and have a chance to win a two-year lease on a Ford® Super
Duty® F-350 King Ranch® truck.

"We are proud to recognize the accomplishments of the increasing number of
FiberMax One Ton Club growers," said Jeff Brehmer, U.S. product manager for
Fibermax. "To achieve this milestone, these growers use the latest FiberMax
varieties and trait technologies to produce high-yielding cotton demanded by
mills worldwide."

Growers have produced One Ton Club yields with 29 FiberMax varieties. Last
year a record number of 197 FiberMax cotton growers achieved high yields,
including a Texas grower who produced 2,910 pounds per acre and a gross loan
