Texas: RGV Cotton, Grain PrePlant Conference, Mercedes, Jan. 16

The 24th Annual RGV Cotton & Grain Pre-Plant Conference will be Tuesday, January 16, 2018 at the Livestock Showgrounds in Mercedes.

We again have an outstanding lineup of speakers that will be addressing timely topics specific to cotton and grain production in the Valley.  Check out the breaking news from DC on cotton policy, catch up on the latest developments with the boll weevil eradication program, learn more about some of the newest cottonseed technologies and much, much more!!

New for 2018!! If you plan to use one of the new formulations of dicamba herbicide on dicamba tolerant cotton, we will have the training that will be mandatory before any of those products can be applied. This special training will be conducted at the end of the program so that only those wanting the training (or needing 1 hour of L&R) can stay.

We hope you make plans to attend. Check out all the details on the attached flyer.

4 hours of TDA CEU’s will be available, including L&R.

We’re working on a good meal for lunch and the door prizes will be generous.
