Right about the same time farmers in the Magnolia State are having roundtable discussions on precision ag, cotton producers in Louisana will also be tacking some precision farming tactics during the annual Cotton Forum being held Jan. 23, at the Delhi Civic Center beginning at 9 a.m.
Topics will include wheat/cotton double-cropping considerations and cotton varieties for 2008. Other presentations will feature cotton seed treatments, crop nutrient removal, an insect update, precision application for nematodes and reducing incidence of weed resistance.
The forums will feature LSU AgCenter experts and have been approved as private applicator recertification meetings by the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry.
