MSU Extension rice agronomist Bobby Golden acted as host and tour guide during the 2017 Mississippi Rice Field Day.

Mississippi State University will hold its annual Rice Producer Field Day, Aug. 2, at the Delta Research and Extension Center near Stoneville beginning at 3:30 p.m.

After a brief welcome at the Capps Center, trailers will depart for the field tour. Among the topics to be covered are rice agronomy, weed control, entomology, pathology and breeding.

This year’s field day will highlight research conducted at Stoneville by many of the graduate students funded by the Mississippi Rice Promotion Board.

Immediately following the field day will be a social hour at the Delta Council’s conference room and back deck.
