Rice producer meeting Feb. 26 in Crowley, La.

The LSU AgCenter will hold a meeting to provide information on new developments in rice weed control on Feb. 26 at the Acadia Parish Extension office, Crowley, La.

The meeting will start at 9 a.m. and end at 11:30 a.m.

Much of the program will involve products that are not yet on the market, said Eric Webster, AgCenter rice weed scientist. “It’s a look into what’s going to be available in 2017 and beyond.”

 Topics will include new technologies for rice weed management, the Provisia technology, using benzobicyclon for controlling weeds, controlling Nealley sprangletop and fighting herbicide-resistant weeds, he said.

The Acadia Parish extension office is located at 157 Cherokee Drive, Crowley.

Eric Webster can be reached at (337) 276-5527 or [email protected].
