The 2021 Rice Field Day is coming Aug. 20 to a device near you! The recent rise in COVID-19 cases around the state prompted the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture to move this year’s rice field day online.
But just because the university can’t present in person doesn’t mean its experts can’t bring the latest rice research and recommendations directly to you!
The university will have presentations on weed and insect management recommendations, rice breeding updates, irrigation best practices and more.
Breeding: Xueyan Sha, Christian de Guzman
Pathology: Yeshi Wamishe
Agronomy: Jarrod Hardke
Soil Fertility: Trent Roberts
Insects: Nick Bateman, Gus Lorenz, Ben Thrash
Irrigation: Chris Henry
Weeds: Jason Norsworthy, Tommy Butts
The presentations will be available for viewing at https://aaes.uada.edu/events/2021-field-days/rice/.
