meetings

During the winter months in 2020, the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture will be holding a series of meetings concerning agriculture markets and production techniques.

The department has released a preliminary schedule of its meetings, which span January and February. In total, there are currently 28 meetings scheduled in different cities. The meetings will address different crop types.

According to Vic Ford, the head of the Cooperative Extension Services’s agriculture and natural resources section, the meetings are designed to give farmers and producers insights into the 2020 growing season as well as lessons from the previous season.

“With the 2019 harvest almost in the books, it’s time for growers to be thinking ahead toward the 2020 crop,” Ford said. “These meetings are the bridge between the growing season, combining lessons learned from 2019 with insights for the upcoming season.”
