Cotton producers and agricultural industry professionals can learn about the latest cotton research at the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture’s annual Cotton Focus on Thursday, February 9.
The event will be held at the West Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center, located at 605 Airways Boulevard, Jackson, Tennessee. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. CST. The half-day program will conclude with a complimentary lunch. There is no cost to attend.
Cotton Focus presentations will address weed, insect, and disease management; a detailed review of the performance of tested cotton varieties; and a look ahead at the 2017 cotton market.
“After the 2016 season, I think many in Tennessee are looking forward to growing more cotton during 2017,” says Tyson Raper, cotton specialist with UTIA. “As planning is underway, this meeting will provide growers with good insights into variety selection, marketing and pest management.”
Continuing Education Units (CEUs) will be available for Pesticide Applicators and Certified Crop Advisors.
