PCCA’s grower-owners have an active voice in the sales strategies for seasonal pools. PCCA’s Marketing Pool Committee guides our Sales team about the production and its risk appetite each year. PCCA monitors farm program benefits, futures markets, other hedging mechanisms, and all cost factors daily to optimize total returns to grower-owners. All farm program benefits related to marketing are processed by PCCA and distributed back to the grower-owners in the payments for their cotton. Unlike some other pools, PCCA pays full USDA loan premiums and discounts on all bales. When conditions warrant, PCCA pays market adjustments to reflect enhanced returns created by specific types of cotton.
PCCA has seasonal pools for West Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas and South Texas. Each pool has its own Marketing Pool Committee comprised of growers elected by their peers.
