Caddo Peanut and Cotton field day Coming up Tomorrow

Wed, 14 Sep 2022 08:53:35 CDT

Caddo Peanut and Cotton field day Coming up Tomorrow The Caddo Research Station in Fort Cobb, Oklahoma, will host a peanut and cotton field day tomorrow, 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
Arnall will update participants on OSU’s soil fertility project, which tests the amount of nitrogen that commercially available biological products add to soil. Researchers are currently testing eight products on cotton.

“We have products that are supposed to create nitrogen or break down organic matter to release nitrogen or create a symbiotic relationship with the plants to improve uptake,” Arnall said. “The goal of the research is to quantify how much nitrogen that these products can add to the system.”

Arnall said producers have a lot of questions about biological products, and he wants them to know researchers are working on the answers.

The Sept. 15 field day will be held 5-7 p.m. with hull blasting provided to peanut growers prior to the event at 2:30 p.m. Weidenmaier said producers unavailable at that time can bring peanuts for blasting in the morning hours. The event will offer CEU and CCA credits for commercial and private applicators. A dinner will be served at 7 p.m. Event coordinators recommend attendees register in advance.
