The ACRPC collaborates with several research partners in order to achieve its mission of protecting and maintaing the viability of the cotton industry in Arizona.
ARIZONA METEOROLOGICAL NETWORK
The ACRCP provides funding support for the Arizona Meteorological Network (AZMET). For the past 25 years, AZMET has provided weather information to Arizona cotton growers. AZMET provides weather information to cotton growers in real time, as well as weekly cotton advisories, heat stress updates, seasonal assessments, and more. Visit the AZMET website.
ARIZONA CROP IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION
The ACRPC collects samples for ACI in their effort to survey cotton fields for Fusarium wilt of cotton. Fusarium Race 4 is a disease-causing fungal strain which has not yet been detected in Arizona cotton, although Arizona fields are continually monitored for its presence.
