Seminar Slated to Discuss Aflatoxin Dangers in Oklahoma Corn Crop

Thu, 01 May 2014 15:35:51 CDT

Seminar Slated to Discuss Aflatoxin Dangers in Oklahoma Corn Crop
An information session discussing the dangers of aflatoxin in Oklahoma’s corn crop is scheduled for May 9th. It will be held at the Enid Convention Hall, 301 South Independence from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., immediately following the Lahoma Field Plot Tour.

This information session will provide the latest information on why aflatoxin is detrimental in the long term for Oklahoma producers, and how the USDA is studying new technology for aflatoxin testing at the elevator.

The speakers for the event will be: Dr. Peter J. Cotty, Research Plant Pathologist and Lead Scientist for the Agricultural Research Service of the USDA, David Gibson and Scott Averhoff of the Texas Corn board along with Dr. Carol Jones, Professor and Research Engineer in Biosystems and Agriculture Engineering from Oklahoma State University.

This event is a follow-up from the USDA Agricultural Research Service Listening Session that was held on January 10, 2014, in Enid. At this listening session, topics were discussed such as animal agriculture, seed development and storage, as well as biofuels. The danger of aflatoxin and the lack of consistent testing methods were cited numerous times as a great concern in this region.

All regional elevator operators, interested producers and agriculture leaders are invited to attend and learn the latest in aflatoxin testing and research.

RSVP to Debbie by email to hand@growenid.com or call (580) 233-4232.
