This series offers producers the opportunity to ask questions and interact with industry representatives, consultants, AgriLife Extension and Research personnel. With cotton prices currently at record levels, it is important to fine-tune cotton production needs to be as efficient as possible to take advantage of the excellent prices. This workshop is designed to provide local cotton growers with tools to help them be successful in the coming growing season, according to Dr. Juan Landivar, director of the Corpus Christi Agrilife Research and Extension Center.
The workshop will begin at 1:30 p.m. and conclude by 5 p.m. Topics will include a discussion of ecological considerations in managing early season insect pests by an invited guest speaker, Dr. Megha Parajoulee, professor and faculty fellow/cotton entomology project leader in Lubbock.
Two CEU’s will be offered for pesticide applicators and certified crop advisors.
