By Susan Himes/Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service—
The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will be presenting the annual Caprock Crop Production Conference on Jan. 22 from 9 a.m.-noon.
The event will be held virtually on the Zoom meeting platform. The cost is $10 per person, and advance registration is required.
There will be three Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units — one general, one drift minimization and one integrated pest management.
For more information, contact Mark Carroll, AgriLife Extension agent for Floyd County, at 806-983-4912 or Caitlin Jackson, AgriLife Extension agent for Crosby County, at 806-675-2347.
Topics and speakers include:
• Lease Agreements – Tiffany Dowell Lashmet, AgriLife Extension agricultural law specialist, Amarillo.
• Weed Management Strategies – Peter Dotray, Ph.D., Texas A&M AgriLife Research weed scientist, Lubbock.
• Drift Minimization – Jacob Reed, BASF Chemicals senior field biologist, Lubbock.
“The Caprock was the first crops conference on the South Plains and this will be our 28th year,” Jackson said. “Although we can’t meet in person this year, we are pleased we can continue to provide this educational program to agricultural producers from Crosby, Floyd and surrounding counties.”
Long-time sponsors Plains Land Bank and Vista Bank are once again supporting this annual event, Carroll said.
“This is the one event that folks return to time and time again,” Carroll said. “This year’s lineup of experts is once again outstanding, and we’re grateful for the support of our sponsors to be able to continue the tradition of being able to offer this important conference to those in ag production.”
