2018 Horizon Ag Arkansas Field Day Aug. 2 near Jonesboro

Will spotlight the performance of new PVL01, a Provisia Rice System variety being planted for the first time this season.

The 2018 Horizon Ag Arkansas Field Day is set for Aug. 2 at Mark Wimpy Farms near Jonesboro, Ark.

The event will spotlight the performance of new PVL01, a Provisia Rice System variety being planted for the first time this season, along with top-performing Clearfield varieties for the region.

With the Provisia Rice System and PVL01, farmers have a new tool to help bring fields threatened by weedy rice back into profitable production.

“The system is critically needed to counter the resistant weedy rice complex that has created costly problems in many fields,” said Dr. Tim Walker, Horizon Ag general manager. “The Provisia Rice System, which was launched by BASF in partnership with Horizon Ag, is an ideal companion to our leading Clearfield varieties like CL153, CL163 and CL172, which offer farmers outstanding yield potential and grain quality.”

Registration begins at 9 a.m. at the farm, which is located at 264 CR 419 near Jonesboro. The event will include guest speakers, tours of field plots and lunch.
