报告题目：Cottonseed research to increase the value and utilization of cottonseed and other cotton byproducts in the US
报告人：Tom Wedegaertner（Director, Cotton Incorporated, US美国棉花公司董事）
A three decades long career in multiple segments of the cottonseed industry has resulted in a considerable knowledge base for every aspect of cottonseed production, ginning, processing and utilization. Issues that limit the utilization of cottonseed products, such as gossypol and mycotoxins have been of particular interest and focus during this long career in the cottonseed industry.
