HOW DID ALL THIS BEGIN?
October 1, 1942 Arizona Cotton Growers was officially established as an organization. At the time there were as many as eight cotton organizations around the state. They decided that having this many players in the game actually weakened the general position of the farmer so they all came together in a meeting and unanimously agreed that all these organizations should be merged into one association, dealing exclusively with the problems of the cotton farmers. The Arizona Cooperative Cotton Growers Association was selected as the association for this function. Later, in September of 1953, our name officially became what we know today as Arizona Cotton Growers Association.
