Baton Rouge Site Of 2011 Leading Mid-South Ag Production Conference T


he 14th Annual National Conservation Sys- tems Cotton & Rice Conference is headed to Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Sponsored by Cotton Incorporated and US Rice

Producers Association, and a production of Mi- dAmerica Farm Publications, the event is sched- uled for Feb. 1 & 2, 2011 at the Crowne Plaza, Baton Rouge, Louisiana. As in the past 13 years, the conference is

Co‐Sponsored the following seven mid‐south universities: University of Arkansas, Mississippi State University, University of Missouri, Univer- sity of Tennessee, LSU Ag Center, Auburn Uni- versity, and Texas A&M. USDA‐NRCS of Washington DC and USDA‐ARS centers in the Southern states are cosponsors as well. The conference has numerous Corporate

Co‐Sponsors and will feature a large trade show. Ag‐Media Co‐Sponsors are Farm Press Publica- tions, Delta and Southwest Farm Press. This conference, a perennial success, first

opened in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1997 and al- ternated locations in succeeding years between Texas, Mississippi and Louisiana. This year’s conference in Tunica, Mississippi drew a record attendance of farmers who accounted for over 1.5 million acres of agriculture production last year. “Baton Rouge is an ideal setting for the confer-

ence, providing a relaxing environment where farmers can visit with other farmers and re- searchers,” said John LaRose, Chairman of the

Conference Steering Committee. “This conference is recognized as the leading

Southern Agriculture Production Conference mainly because over 40 farmers along with over 40 researchers and numerous crop consultants make presentations during the 90 plus breakout sessions,” stated LaRose. “During a given hour, there are over 20 unique breakout sessions to choose from.” “This is the only annual conference in the

United States where attendees can participate in approximately 40 agriculture production break- out sessions being presented by actual farmers.” As in the past, two other conferences will be

sponsored by the Cotton and Rice Conference and held at the same time and location. The Mid‐South Corn and Soybean Conference and the Mid‐South Precision Ag Conference are held in conjunction with the Cotton & Rice Confer- ence. The Cotton and Rice Conference is a must‐at-

tend event for all farmers wishing to hone their production methods. The conference offers farm- ers ways to trim inputs while boosting yields. In recent years both farmers and landlords have found that beyond tillage, there are many other farming resources that can be conserved through a properly designed conservation sys- tems program. The importance of conserving soil moisture, as well as reducing fuel, labor, seed, chemical, fertilizer and other input costs is the key to economic success for all farmers and landowners.

“The main emphasis of the conference is re-

ducing production costs and increasing yields in cotton rice, soybeans and corn through preci- sion agriculture in its many forms,” said LaRose. Farmers from Mississippi, Texas, Alabama,

Louisiana and Tennessee will be able to receive their state pesticide re‐certification credits. Cer- tified crop consultants can select from over 40 hours of qualifying sessions to earn CEU’s dur- ing the conference.
