The 14th Annual National Conservation Systems Cotton & Rice Conference, the Southern Corn & Soybean Conference and the Southern Precision Ag Conference are headed to Baton Rouge, La.

Sponsored by Cotton Incorporated and US Rice Producers Association, and a production of MidAmerica Farm Publications, the event is scheduled for Feb. 1-2, 2011 at the Crowne Plaza, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

“Forty eight farmers will discuss their farming operations during their individual Breakout Sessions. In addition to the farmers, 58 researchers representing seven southern universities will share their latest production research. Cotton, rice, corn and soybean production systems will be the topics. During a given hour, there are over 20 unique breakout sessions to choose from,” stated John LaRose, chairman of the Conference Steering Committee.

This conference program is recognized by past attendees as the leading agriculture production conference.

When attendees were asked for their feedback at past conferences, this is what they wrote:

• “I liked real farmers talking about real world experiences and I was impressed with their vast knowledge and proven variables.”

• “I liked the informality of the meetings, timely information and the one on one with speakers. That alone made it the best conference in the South.”

• “The forward thinking speakers were truly experts in their fields — excellent meeting.”

• “Networking with like mind individuals in small group discussions provided a unique conference.”

• “The experiences of the producers really brought the message home for me — hearing farmers telling their stories of success and failure along with researchers giving scientific data.”
