The 2020 Field Day for the H. Rouse Caffey Rice Research Station will be held online this year due to the challenges caused by the ongoing pandemic. The internet presentations by Rice Research Station faculty will be available for viewing starting July 1 at 8:00am on our website.
The virtual presentations will cover new rice varieties, weed, insect, and disease control, hybrid rice development, agronomic practices, and crawfish production. Poster presentations will be available in PowerPoint.
The event will wrap up with talks by Bill Richardson, LSU vice president for agriculture; Mike Salassi, AgCenter associate vice president for plant and animal sciences; Richard Fontenot, chairman of the Louisiana Rice Research Board; and Mike Strain, commissioner of the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry.
