This year, the Acadia Parish LSU AgCenter will again be hosting the Acadia / LSU South Farm Rice Field Day. The date of the field day will be June 16th and we will begin at 8:30am. We will have LSU AgCenter rice specialists give talks regarding rice varieties, agronomics, state update, rice insects and rice herbicides.
Due to state COVID guidelines, all pre-tour talks will be done outside under a covered area and will be done before the field tour. In addition to the rice herbicide weed tour, we will stop off at Dr. Famoso’s breeding plots and Dr. Brijesh Angira will give a breeding update.
This year’s speakers include the following:
- Dr. Ronnie Levy
- Dr. Blake Wilson
- Dr. Brijesh Angira
- Dr. Eric Webster
The address to the LSU AgCenter South Farm is 7370 South La 13 in Crowley which is located right outside the city limits of Crowley on Hwy. 13.
