Shortly thereafter, he returned home from the armed services to begin a career as a fourth generation farmer. He initiated the use of Dixie King cotton seed variety and served as a spokesperson for the seed company. Another innovation used by Nunn was bringing the first single cotton row picker to Bostwick in the 1960's.
