Cotton Storage Agreement

 
Spotlights

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) enters into Cotton Storage Agreements (CSA) with private individuals and companies to allow warehouse operators to store cotton owned by CCC or pledged as security to CCC for marketing assistance loans.

 
Warehouse operators wanting a Cotton Storage Agreement are encouraged to review the regulations and guidelines and agreement documents.

 
To be approved to store CCC-owned or loan cotton, warehouse operators must:

 
  • Submit an application to the Storage Contract Branch, Kansas City Commodity Office (KCCO).

 
When a warehouse is approved, CCC adds the warehouse to a List of Approved Cotton Warehouses which is provided to local FSA offices. Producers must store commodities in warehouses on this listing to obtain warehouse-stored marketing assistance loans.

 
The warehouse tariff rate information is derived from the latest submission from individual cotton warehouse operators. The United States Department of Agriculture does not warrant the information in any way. Many public tariff rates are subject to other dependent clauses within the tariff document. It is strongly recommended that users of this information contact the individual warehouse to verify the rates, and obtain all of the terms and conditions within each public tariff.
