MSU, Farm Bureau to host 2015 rice meeting/field day

Rice growers and consultants will be able to cross two meetings off their lists on one day: July 30.

Mississippi State University and the Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation will sponsor a summer meeting and field day at the MSU Delta Research and Extension Center in Stoneville, Miss.

The Farm Bureau summer rice grower meeting will begin with lunch at noon in the Capps Center, followed by a program at 1 p.m.

The Rice Field Day will begin at 3:30 p.m. with a field tour of research plots.

Guest speakers for the meeting include Betsy Ward and Ben Mosley of the USA Rice Federation.

Field day topics include emerging herbicide technologies, rice disease identification and management, insect management and the benefits of rice seed treatments, utilization and benefit of Side Inlet Max in Mississippi production systems, and a breeding program update and potential releases on the horizon.
