Want to protect the quality of your cotton? I thought so.

Lauren Krogman, Manager of Marketing and Processing Technology for the National Cotton Council encourages growers to visit’s contamination free page to learn more about approved module wrap and how to keep U.S. cotton clean…

“On February 15th of 2022, the new voluntary round module wrap standard was approved and published by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological and Engineers.”

This standard, she says, protects the industry from inferior wrap products that are entering the U.S. and could cause contamination…

“The most important thing here is that if you can get a module all the way to the gin undamaged, that’ll drastically reduce the chances for contamination. And by using only the wrap that’s on the approved product list, we can make sure that is reduced.”

Questions? She says you can shoot those in an email to

“All of the standard material as well as a quick write-up that we did is located on our website at on the contamination free page in the very first paragraph.”
