DELHI – Growers from Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi will hear the latest in soybean research during the 2006 Tri-State Soybean Forum slated for Jan. 6, 2006, at the Delhi Civic Center.
Hosted by the LSU AgCenter, the meeting will cover a variety of topics and include experts from the LSU AgCenter, the University of Arkansas and Mississippi State University.
Keith Collins, an LSU AgCenter county agent in Richland Parish and the chairperson for this tri-state meeting, said activities will begin with registration at 8 a.m. and continue with the opening session at 8:30 a.m. The meeting will end at 12:30 p.m. with lunch.
"We have a variety of presentations scheduled that we believe will help soybean producers grow more profitable crops," Collins said. "We encourage everyone who has anything to do with the production of soybeans to attend."
Speakers for the forum include LSU AgCenter soybean specialist Dr. David Lanclos who will speak on "Successes in Mid-South Soybean Verification Programs." In addition, extension engineer Phil Tacker of the University of Arkansas will speak on "Irrigation Termination Research Results."
Other topics include a Mid-south perspective on Asian soybean rust for 2006, the economic outlook for soybeans, early soybean production systems, the application timing and value of harvest aids in soybeans and an update on red-shouldered stink bugs.
There is no fee for attending the meeting, but advance registration is requested so organizers can make plans for the lunch that will be provided.
