Annual APRES meeting features research on cutting edge technology

APRES meeting organizers were pleased with the attendance, participation and the venues, and noted some optimism for the U.S. peanut industry with market upticks and new products and practices coming from ag research.

The 49th annual conference for the American Peanut Research and Education Society (APRES) featured updates on the use of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) in agricultural research, the importance of biosecurity in agriculture, regional updates from the Southwest peanut industry, research reports from across the peanut belt, and the reminiscence of an agricultural editor’s near 40-years covering Sunbelt farms and ranches. The scenic vistas of Albuquerque served as backdrop to the annual meeting, which ran from July 11-13.
