The 34th annual 2022 Texas Plant Protection Conference is set for Dec. 6-7, at the Brazos Center in Bryan. The conference will confront topics challenging production agriculture today, including pesticide and fertilizer costs, weather and food security.
Senior Advisor for Agriculture to the EPA Administrator Rod Snyder will provide an update on federal pesticide policy, while economist Mark Welch, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, will give the global markets outlook and how it's impacting Texas agriculture.
Other topics to be covered include carbon credit contracts, stink bug control in sorghum and the use of gossypol-free cottonseed to help solve world hunger.
The two-day conference, geared toward farmers and agriculture industry representatives, will include seven sessions with 15-minute presentations on various related topics. The sessions include Consultants; Cotton; Fertility Management; Grain; Horticulture/Turf; Water and Irrigation Management; and Pasture and Rangeland.
TPPA will also recognize association members for their contributions to agriculture and TPPA at the annual awards luncheon, Dec. 7, including presenting the Norman Borlaug Lifetime Achievement Award, the association's most prestigious award.
