PORTAGEVILLE, MO – Last Friday, the University of Missouri’s College of Agriculture hosted their annual Fisher Delta Research Center Field Day that typically attracts more than 500 attendees and kicks-off with an appreciation breakfast and presentations by local, state, and national elected officials followed by field tours and concluding with lunch. This year, however, the Center opted for a virtual field day rather than their usual in-person meeting.
The Fisher Delta Research Center website states: “Every year, at the Fisher Delta Research Center Appreciation Breakfast that precedes the annual Field Day, speakers come from across the state to support the center and talk about the state’s number one economic driver – agriculture. This year, all invited speakers were instead welcomed to share virtual well wishes for the center and the producers, natural resources managers, and landowners of southeast Missouri.”
The research presentation portion of this year’s virtual field day included topics such as furrow irrigated rice bed widths, nitrogen management for furrow irrigated rice, grass control in tank mixtures, and reliability of plant sensors, as well as other topics regarding cotton, soybean, and hemp production.
