The Oklahoma Ag Expo will be holding a food drive for the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma again this year! Every $1 donated provides 4 meals to those in need. If each attendee donates $2 to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, we could raise over $1,000 that would provide 4,000 meals. In fiscal year 2017, the Regional Food Bank distributed 52 million pounds of food through a network of 1,300 community-based partner agencies, charitable feeding programs and schools throughout 53 central and western Oklahoma counties. Their administrative and fundraising costs are less than 4 percent, which means 96 cents out of every dollar donated goes to feed the hungry in our state. If you would like to make a monetary donation to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, a line has been added to the registration form.

1:30 p.m. Insecticide Seed Treatments in Wheat, Canola and Sorghum: Do They Work and Will They Pay?
Insecticide seed treatments are a new, widely used tool for managing early season insect pests. There is also concern about their impact on pollinators (especially honey bees and native bees). Despite their potential drawbacks, they do provide some much needed control of early season aphid pests that can cause significant yield loss. I will discuss their benefits and drawbacks, and present some data that shows their yield preservation potential in wheat, canola and sorghum.
