 Title:  Arizona Cotton Growers Association ead 
 Date(s):  unknown 
 Abstract:  Originally founded as the Salt River Valley Egyptian Cotton Growers Association around 1913, they changed their name in 1917 to the Arizona Cotton Growers Association. From 1933-1943, the ACGA was shut down because of funding issues. In 1943, the ACGA was re-established with the objective of uniting cotton growers from around the State of Arizona. The cotton industry thrived in Arizona until the 1970s when government intervention made the production of cotton difficult. The cotton industry has been on the decline in recent time due to pests, such as the boll weevil, killing the cotton crop. In addition to the pest problems, environmental concerns and water rights still plague the ACGA and cotton growers across the State of Arizona.
