EAGLE LAKE – The 45th annual Eagle Lake Rice Field Day is scheduled for 4 p.m. June 25 at the David R. Wintermann Rice Research Station on Farm-to-Market Road 102, just north of Eagle Lake.

The field day will offer an opportunity for producers to tour the research station, making stops along the way to hear about insect management, weed management, plant nutrient management, disease management, varietal testing, and rice breeding.

The field day is planned and coordinated by the Colorado County Rice Committee, which is comprised of local producers who meet throughout the year to identify topics for the event that are relevant and applicable to producers in the area. Area agribusiness continues to provide crucial sponsorship to support this event so that all who are interested in attending can do so free of charge.

The evening program will be held at the Eagle Lake Community Center with Steve Linscombe providing a brief update concerning the publication of the USA Rice Sustainability Report followed by a discussion led by Pam West and Maclane Peters concerning Texas rice exports.

Also on the agenda for the evening program are Joe Outlaw who will provide an update on farm policy issues and Ted Wilson who will share some observations concerning climate change data and potential impacts on rice production.

A catered meal will be provided at the evening program. Two continuing education units will be offered to all licensed pesticide applicators who attend the tour and evening program.

For more information, contact the David R. Wintermann Rice Research Station at 979-234-3578 or the Extension office for Colorado County at 979-732-2082.
