Caddo Peanut and Cotton Field Day Approaching in September
The Caddo Research Station in Ft. Cobb will host a peanut and cotton field day on Sept. 15. Oklahoma State University and U.S. Department of Agriculture researchers will share crop information on their latest peanut and cotton research projects and discuss solutions to the challenges producers face.

“Like other field days, OSU researchers are trying to relay what they’ve found to growers with unbiased opinions,” said Bobby Weidenmaier, station assistant superintendent. “We deliver research-based facts to producers, so they can make the best decisions for their crops.”

The event will offer the following presentations:

• Weed management in peanuts and cotton – Todd Baughman, OSU Extension weed management specialist

• Cotton harvest aids – Seth Byrd, OSU Extension cotton specialist

• Peanut variety development – Kelly Chamberlin, USDA peanut geneticist

• Disease evaluations of peanut cultivars and advanced breeding lines – Rebecca Bennett, USDA plant pathologist

• Soil fertility project update – Brian Arnall, OSU Extension precision nutrient management specialist

• Cover crop impacts on greenhouse gas emissions – Jason Warren, OSU Extension water and soil conservation specialist

Rural Oklahoma is full of some of the greatest success stories throughout the entire state and is a big reason why Oklahoma is on track to become a top 10 state. 

The Road to Rural Prosperity dives into these stories, bringing you stories covering rural life, agriculture, energy, healthcare, tourism, and politics affecting rural America. 

The Road to Rural Prosperity is here to tell stories about rural America, for rural America.

KC Sheperd visits with Dakota Moss of Livestock Risk Services. When the pandemic hit in 2020 the cattle markets along with the rest of the world suffered. Many farmers and ranchers altered their marketing plans on crops and livestock to try and prevent a loss in the down Covid markets. This led to cattle being held months longer than planned hoping for a better market. Unfortunately for many farmers and ranchers they had no choice but to sell much heavier cattle into a down market. Resulting in a lower $/cwt price and profits lost. Sheperd and Moss discuss some alternative options for producers with the Livestock Risk Protection program.
