The High Plains Ag Conference conducted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service is set for 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Dec. 13 at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center, 1102 E. Farm-to-Market 1294, Lubbock.

“This program will contain a little of just about every topic regional crop producers have indicated they’re interested in on the Southern Rolling Plains,” said Robert Scott, AgriLife Extension agent in Lubbock County.

“Speakers will address everything from cotton varieties to aquaponics, and we’ll have a great lunch and continuing education units available, so it should be a day well spent for a number of reasons.”

 

Individual preregistration, which includes lunch, is $35 by Dec. 10 and $45 at the door with no lunch guarantee, Scott said. For more information contact Scott at 806-775-1680 or rj-scott@tamu.edu .

Five Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units, three general, one laws and regulations, and one integrated pest management, will be available for those with a valid private applicators license.

Topics and presenters, all headquartered at Lubbock, will include:

  • Cotton Varieties, Dr. Mark Kelley, AgriLife Extension agronomist.
  • A Look at Alternative Crops, Guar and Sesame, Dr. Calvin Trostle, AgriLife Extension agronomist.
  • Pigweed Weed Resistance, Dr. Peter Dotray, AgriLife Extension weed specialist.
  • 2014 AgriLife Extension Program Updates, Scott and Mark Brown, AgriLife Extension county agents.
  • Pesticide Laws and Regulations, Steve Boston, Texas Department of Agriculture.
  • Chemigation, Irrigation Efficiency and Update on the High Plains Water District regulations, Dr. Dana Porter, AgriLife Extension agricultural engineering specialist.
