Calcot’s history is unique in the American cotton industry, as it’s as much the history of modern cotton production in the Far West as it is a corporate history. Understanding the history of the challenges faced by irrigated cotton producers in literally creating a multi-billion dollar industry from the ground up is key to understanding what makes our agricultural marketing cooperative unique.
With this in mind, and to better tell our story, we have put together a historic timeline. Included are key developments prior to and during our 1927 beginnings that were highly significant and influential in our founders’ decision to form a marketing cooperative, as well as other pivotal and subsequent events which have helped shape our cooperative into what it is today.
Thank you for your interest in Calcot. Please contact us if you have questions or would like additional information.
