Ag Day to include soybean, rice production research and review


Crop budgets and the market outlook for the coming year are on the agenda of Ag Day 2013 set for Jan. 3, 2013, at the Lonoke Agricultural Center on U.S. 70 just east of Lonoke.

The meeting, hosted jointly by the Lonoke and Pulaski County Extension offices, begins at 9 a.m. There is no cost to attend.

"Drought, the farm bill and fluctuating markets will mean different challenges for growers in 2013," said Keith Perkins, Lonoke County Extension agent for the University Of Arkansas Division Of Agriculture. "We have a great lineup of University of Arkansas researchers who will give insights into the lessons learned from the 2012 growing season and how they can benefit your farming operation."

Speakers and topics include: Bob Scott, weed scientist, rice /soybean weed control/ resistance management; Jeremy Ross, soybean agronomist, soybean update; Yeshi Wamishe, plant pathologist, rice and soybean diseases; Trent Roberts, assistant professor of soil fertility, soil fertility for rice and soybeans; Keith Perkins, Lonoke County Extension agent, farm safety; Dianna Bowen, Lonoke County Extension agent, preventing back injury; Gus Lorenz, Extension entomologist, rice and soybean insects; and Scott Stiles, Extension economist, economics of production and market update.
