Late-season field day examines Delta crops
STONEVILLE -- Growers and consultants are invited to the Mississippi State University Delta Research and Extension Center Aug. 13 for a look at late-season issues affecting the state’s row crop acreage.
The half-day field day begins with registration and exhibits at 11 a.m., followed by lunch at noon and field tours that start at 1 p.m. Visitors will make several stops in the research station fields to examine current crop conditions and hear reports and information from MSU researchers and Extension Service specialists.
“The field tours will look at late-season crop issues in corn, soybeans, cotton, rice and peanuts,” said Jeff Johnson, director of the research station in Stoneville. “Among the topics our scientists will discuss are irrigation termination, late-season disease, insects pests and harvest issues.”
There is no cost to attend this field day. Continuing education units are available.
