    The cost is $15, and the registration deadline is Dec. 2. Once the registration is processed, participants will receive an email with a link to the meeting. There will be three Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units available – one laws and regulations, and two general.

    “We started this conference in 2007, so it has now been going for 13 years,” said Robert Scott, AgriLife Extension agent for Lubbock County. “I just didn’t want our producers to miss out on the opportunity this year, so we will be holding it online due to COVID-19.”

    • Cover Crops, Crop Rotations and Nutrient Management – Katie Lewis, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension soil chemistry and fertility specialist, Lubbock.
    • Managing Forage Sorghum to Optimize Silage Quality – Jourdan Bell, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension agronomist, Amarillo.
