History

history-1The cold tolerant cotton was developed in Leland Mississippi by Dr. John Green and his partner Linwood Roberts. It was first proven in the field in 2000 that cotton could be planted early in central Mississippi and still maintain high yield. Seed was available for commercial release in 2001 when Douglass King marketed the seed in Texas.

Edward Jungmann and his wife Jane decided to purchase the seed rights in December of 2004 and continue to market the cold tolerant cotton. They have the exclusive marketing rights in the United States and promote the seed throughout the Delta, Mid-South, Southeast, South and Southwest.
