Red River Crops Conference covers multiple crops, marketing and farm bill

The Second Annual Red River Crops Conference, held in late January in Childress, Texas, built on the success of last year’s inaugural event in Altus, Oklahoma. The conference will alternate between Texas and Oklahoma and will feature updates on production techniques, marketing and legislation.

This year’s conference featured experts and farmers from both states. Discussions included information on the traditional crops grown in the Red River Basin—cotton, grain sorghum, wheat and forage for the beef industry. Speakers also offered updates on alternative but increasingly important crops such as guar, sesame and canola.

Texas AgriLife Extension and Oklahoma State University Extension are co-sponsors of the event.
