LSU AgCenter announces 2006 Tri-State Soybean Meeting

ELHI, La. — Producers from Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi will have an opportunity to hear the latest in soybean research during the 2006 Tri-State Soybean Meeting slated for Jan. 6 at the Delhi Civic Center in Delhi, La.

Hosted by the LSU AgCenter, the meeting will feature a variety of topics covered by experts from the LSU AgCenter, the University of Arkansas and Mississippi State University.

Keith Collins, LSU AgCenter Richland Parish county agent and chairperson of the event, said activities are scheduled to get under way with registration at 8 a.m.

“We have scheduled a variety of presentations we believe will help soybean producers grow more profitable crops,” Collins said. “We encourage everyone who has anything to do with the production of soybeans to attend.”

Speakers for the day include LSU AgCenter soybean specialist David Lanclos, who will speak on “Successes in Mid-South Soybean Verification Programs.” Other topics covered by LSU AgCenter researchers include “Harvest Aids in Soybeans — Application Timing and Value,” and a “Red Shouldered Stink Bug Update.”

Phil Tacker and Chris Tingle from the University of Arkansas will speak on “Irrigation Termination Research Results” as well as “Dealing with Higher Fuel Costs.” Cliff Coker of the University of Arkansas, in cooperation with Dan Poston from Mississippi State University and Boyd Padgett from the LSU AgCenter, will provide a “Mid-South Soybean Rust Overview.”

Other topics to be covered include: “Early Soybean Production Systems — What is Working?” by Alan Blaine, Mississippi State University soybean specialist and “Economic Outlook for Soybeans” by Jim Quinn.

There is no registration fee for the meeting, which ends at 12:30 p.m., but pre-registration is requested so organizers will know how many to plan for the lunch that will be provided.
