Texas A&M Hotel and Conference Center
College Station, Texas

The three-day conference will provide timely information to farmers and ranchers, agricultural and water professionals, researchers, Extension educators and students on optimizing water use efficiency and protecting water quality in the south, said Kevin Wagner, director of Oklahoma State University's Oklahoma Water Resources Center and a member of the conference planning team.

"The program will include discussions from both ag producers and researchers on a wide range of topics from irrigation and nutrient management to soil health, watershed management and protecting private water wells," Wagner said. "Other conference topics include nutrient and pest control to protect water quality, septic system management and rainwater harvesting."

Jason Warren, OSU Cooperative Extension soil and water conservation specialist, encourages anyone in the Oklahoma agricultural industry to take advantage of the conference to introduce innovative sustainable farming ideas into the state.

"There is a great opportunity here to learn first-hand from the professionals about how you can best manage your water in an efficient, sustainable way," Warren said. "You would be doing yourself and the entire state of Oklahoma a favor by attending."

Registration is $200 for general attendees, $100 for farmers and producers and $50 for students. You may register at agrilife.org/southern-region-water-conference/registration-2019.

The conference is supported in part by the Southern Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education program and land grant universities throughout the south from OSU and Texas A&M to North Carolina and Florida.
