Red River Crops Conference
Wednesday, January 22, 2020
Southwest Technology Center
711 W. Tamarack Rd.
A hardy group of people chose to settle the upper Red River region in Oklahoma and Texas. In spite of many obstacles, pioneers and their descendants have turned the area into a viable agricultural production region. These obstacles can include water and land resources, and weather extremes such as hot and dry summers and bitterly cold winters. These challenges must be overcome in order to succeed as an agricultural producer.
This region offers high agricultural potential when all of the conditions align. Pastures of both introduced grass and native species have the potential to support traditional cattle operations.
Crop mixes include but are not limited to cotton, wheat, and grain and forage sorghum. More recently, producers have discovered that canola, guar, and sesame can also be successfully cultivated within this environment.
The area spans across the state lines of Oklahoma and Texas. Given this, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension and Oklahoma Cooperative Extension have joined together to help address
these special agricultural production circumstances. The goal of the Red River Crops Conference is to provide agricultural producers with relevant management information applicable to this
production area that will create and enhance the profitability of farm and ranch enterprises.
