Field days in the Delta look at row crops, rice
STONEVILLE – Two upcoming field days at Mississippi State University’s Delta Research and Extension Center will showcase the latest research on soybeans, corn and rice.
On July 19, MSU Extension Service specialists and Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station researchers will focus on soybeans and corn during presentations and field tours. Rice will be the topic on July 31.
For both events, participants who preregister at http://www.msucares.com/drec will be eligible for door prizes. On-site registration will begin at 2 p.m. each day. Field tours start at 3:30 p.m.
After each field day, the Delta Council is hosting a reception at 5:45 p.m. at their building at the Delta Research and Extension Center.
“Delta producers, crop consultants and landowners rely on the work of the researchers and scientists at the Delta Research and Extension Center because they are studying the same crops under the same conditions that we see every day in the fields,” said Bubba Simmons of Hollandale. “When I tour their test plots, I can see firsthand what works and what doesn’t, which saves me money in the long run.”
