The High Plains Cotton Conference, hosted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, will be presented online Jan. 28, with programming running from 9-11 a.m. CST.

The program will be free to all, with sponsorship by FMC Corp.

“We want to continue to provide our producers with the most updated production information possible, even if we can’t meet in person,” said Kristy Slough, AgriLife Extension agriculture and natural resources agent for Hutchinson County. “We have AgriLife experts who will be able to answer questions, whether they concern soil, fertility or markets.”

One general Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education will be offered to private pesticide applicators.

Slough said advanced registration is needed to ensure participants receive the meeting link. To register, call the AgriLife Extension office for Hutchinson County at 806-878-4026 or Hansford County at 806-659-4130 prior to Jan. 26.

Speakers will be Dr. Jourdan Bell, AgriLife Extension agronomist, and Dr. Justin Benavidez, AgriLife Extension economist, both of Amarillo, and Dr. Katie Lewis, Texas A&M AgriLife Research soil scientist, Lubbock.
