NOTE FROM NCSU: The NC Cotton Field Day, previously scheduled for this Thursday, has been CANCELLED and will likely be rescheduled for next year. We encourage everyone to take the necessary precautions / preparations for this storm, and we pray for safety for all involved and minimal impact on our crops.
The 2018 NC Cotton Field Day is scheduled for Thursday, September 13th, 2018 and will be held at the Upper Coastal Plains Research Station in Rocky Mount (2811 Nobles Mill Pond Road, Rocky Mount NC, 27801). This field day, which is held every other year, is a large event that includes all involved in the NC cotton industry.
This field day will showcase the latest cotton research from NC State University cotton research and extension faculty, and will cover a broad array of disciplines, including agronomics, weed science, cotton diseases, insect management, soil fertility, etc.
Registration will begin at 11:00 a.m., followed by lunch from 11:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. The official welcome will begin at 1:00 p.m. followed shortly by field tours from 1:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. At 4:45 p.m., attendees will hear closing remarks, and ice cream will be served, in addition to door prizes.
This event has been very well attended in the past, and with a currently strong interest in cotton, we expect another large crowd this year. Mark your calendars for September 13th, and we hope to see you there. Please see the brochure below for additional details.
