The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff Agriculture Field Day will be June 27 at the research station on Oliver Road, off University Drive.

The field day begins at 7:30 a.m. with registration and welcoming remarks at 8:30 a.m. Tractor tours will take participants to educational stops. The first tour leaves at 9 a.m. and the last one at 10:30 a.m. Research scientists and Extension specialists will be at each stop to explain their research, give updates and answer questions.

Demonstration stop topics include sweet potatoes, rice disease, Southern peas, ornamentals and livestock. Some of the specific topics at the stops will be “effectiveness of herb plants as pest barriers for vegetables,” “evaluation of woody ornamentals (trees and shrubs) in southeast Arkansas conditions,” “using cover crops for weed control and nutrient cycling in sweet potatoes” and “the influence of organic and inorganic fertilizers on the yield and nutritional quality of sweet potato varieties.”

Tours of the sweet potato foundation seed/biotechnology greenhouses, the swine complex, goat and cattle buildings and the value-added products center will also be a part of field day as will an antique tractor show.

Lunch will be provided by Tyson Foods, Inc. but only with a ticket included with registration materials.

Registration is free, but pre-registration is requested to aid in planning. To pre-register, contact Margaret Taylor at 870-575-7144 or taylorml@uapb.edu. On-site registration ends at 10:30 a.m. on June 27.
