Texas A&M AgriLife Research Rice Field Day

Texas A&M AgriLife Research Rice Field Day

Thursday, July 13, 2017 - 2:00pm

The Organic Center will be presenting at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research Rice Field Day on July 13, 2017 in Beaumont, Texas.  The afternoon will feature information about our organic rice program, with the objectives of providing updated information about organic rice production and management, reporting on the progress of our project, and getting input from our stakeholder advisory board.  We’ll also be giving an organic rice field tour to talk about disease control, nutrient management, insect control, and variety performance.  Field tours will be followed by an organic rice workshop and an advisory board meeting for our project.  The workshop will cover disease management and research updates from Texas, information about nutrients and agronomy, weed management, insect management, updates from Arkansas and South Carolina, details about our outreach program (including this website!), an update on our cost-benefit analysis and plenty of time for questions.
