CCA Training Scheduled in Conjunction with 34th Rice Technical Working Group Meeting Monday Feb. 27th
Author: Trenton Roberts, Associate Professor, Crop, Soil & Environmental Sciences

The CCA training held in conjunction with RTWG provides Rice consultants the unique opportunity to interact with researchers and extension specialists from all areas of the United States. Presenters this year will be focused on emerging issues directly influencing  the domestic rice industry, such as improving water quality and mitigating greenhouse gas emissions. An excellent panel discussion has been incorporated to address the detrimental effects of bacterial panicle blight and the options available to producers. The great thing about this session is that it is specific to US rice and covers all the important issues facing our industry. Please find the session information and training below.

When: Monday February 27th from 1-5 pm

Where: Embassy Suites Hotel, Hot Springs, AR
