Farmers and other agriculture industry insiders who want insights on the markets and production techniques should attend the 2020 winter production meetings hosted by the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture.

“With the 2019 harvest almost in the books, it’s time for growers to be thinking ahead toward the 2020 crop,” said Vic Ford, who heads up the agriculture and natural resources section of the Cooperative Extension Service. “These meetings are the bridge between the growing season, combining lessons learned from 2019 with insights for the upcoming season.”

The schedule is preliminary, so growers are advised to check with their county extension offices for details. To see the schedule, visit online.
