2019 Arkansas Pesticide Application Clinics scheduled

Arkansas producers can learn to get the most out of their pest management dollars at one of six pesticide application clinics set for February and March across the state.

 

This spring’s clinics will be:

  • Feb. 20 – STUTTGART — Rice Research Center in Stuttgart
  • Feb.  21 – McGEHEE – Men’s Center
  • Feb.  22 – FORREST CITY – Woodruff Electric Cooperative Corp.
  • March 5 – NEWPORT – ASU-Newport
  • March 6 – PARAGOULD – Greene County Fairgrounds
  • March 7 – MANILA – Manila Municipal Airport.

 

“This is an opportunity for producers to get their pre-season skills honed by learning about new technology to help them be more productive and efficient in the field,” said Jason Davis, extension spray application technologist for the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture.

 

 

Registration opens at 8:30 a.m., with the agenda beginning at 9 a.m. Lunch will be served.

 

Attendees can also avail themselves of the free nozzle tests by bringing three to five nozzles and caps to be analyzed for percentage wear, Davis said. “This analysis has the potential to save a producer thousands of dollars and is a great way to set them up with better nozzles for the upcoming spray season.”

 

For more information about these events, Jason Davis by phone at (501)749-2077 or email at jdavis@uaex.edu.
