Grain sorghum production workshop March 9

A mini-workshop aimed at grain sorghum production in the Rolling Plains has been scheduled for March 9 by the Texas AgriLife Extension Service and the United Sorghum Checkoff Program.

The program will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. at the Texas AgriLife Research and Extension Center-Vernon at 11708 U.S. Highway 70 South (just northeast of Lockett on U.S. 70).

Aspects of sorghum production to be discussed include seeding rates, planting dates, hybrid selection, insects, herbicide options and economics, according to Calvin Trostle, AgriLife Extension agronomist in Lubbock.

Two continuing education units – one general and one in integrated pest management – will be available, Trostle said. Lunch will be sponsored by the United Sorghum Checkoff Program and will feature an update on the current sorghum checkoff program, he said.

RSVPs are requested by March 8. For more information or to reserve lunch contact Heather Easterling at 940-552-9941, ext. 252,
