Louisiana Rice: Horizon Ag Field Day, Kaplan, June 28

    From the latest news about top performing Provisia and Clearfield rice varieties to updates from industry leaders, the annual Horizon Ag Louisiana Field Day is the place for farmers looking to stay on top of production challenges while seeking higher yields, better milling quality and more return on their investment.

    The 2022 Horizon Ag Louisiana Field Day is June 28 at Richard Farms, located at 5632 Highway 700, near Kaplan, Louisiana. It will begin at 5 p.m. and includes a field plot tour and guest speakers, followed by dinner.

    “There’s no better way to find out what’s happening in the region than to attend this type of event with other farmers and industry partners,” says Dr. Tim Walker, Horizon Ag general manager.

    “Our Horizon Ag Louisiana Field Day gives us a chance to share the latest information regarding how our elite varieties are performing, what farmers should be looking at this summer, and what’s coming down the road. It’s also a chance to get together and talk about issues important to the rice industry.”

    Dr. Walker says farmers this year have been asking for more information about the Provisia Rice System and PVL03, along with wanting to hear how the newest Clearfield varieties CLL17 and CLL16 are performing.

    The Horizon Ag Louisiana Field Day is traditionally held the evening before the annual rice field day at the LSU AgCenter H. Rouse Caffey Rice Research Station at Crowley, Louisiana.

    “It’s great that we can meet in-person again and we want to make it as convenient as possible for farmers who are traveling to attend both field days,” says Dr. Walker. “We will provide some valuable information about our varieties and serve up a great meal ahead of them going to the LSU field day at Crowley the next morning.”
