The 20th annual National Conservation Systems Cotton and Rice Conference, the Southern Corn and Soybean Conference, the Southern Precision Ag Conference and the Delta States Irrigation Conference are all headed to Baton Rouge in a week or so.
Sponsored by Cotton Incorporated, US Rice Producers Association, and the United Soybean Board and a production of MidAmerica Farm Publications, the event is scheduled for January 30 to February 1, 2017 at the Crowne Plaza, Baton Rouge, LA.
Producers, mark your calendar for January 30 to February 1, 2017 for what will be the most important conference to attend in 2017 if you want to increase your yields and cut your costs. "This conference has the reputation as being the number one place where all producers can learn the latest production methods and techniques being utilized by the leading ag producers, researchers and the ag industry in the United States," said John LaRose, Chairman of Conference Steering Committee.
The conference is fast becoming the leading source for Certified Crop Consultants to earn Continuing Education Credits (CEU's). The 2016 conference was approved for 79 hours of CEU's by the Certified Crop Advisors Association. It is expected that similar CEUÕs will be offered in the 2017 conference.
Academic Partners are: University of Arkansas, Mississippi State University, University of Missouri, University of Tennessee, LSU AgCenter, Auburn University and Texas A&M. Technical Partners are USDA-ARS Centers in Oxford, MS, Stoneville, MS and Auburn, AL.
