On behalf of the Mississippi State University Extension Service, we would like to cordially invite you to attend the 2014 Row Crop Short Course to be held at the Bost Extension Center on the campus of Mississippi State University from December 1st – 3rd, 2014.

Pre-registration is free of charge until November 26th, 2014.  Registration after November 26th, 2014, including at the door, will be $40.

The 2014 Row Crop Short Course will begin on the morning of Monday, December 1st with a fertility symposium led by Drs. Bobby Golden and Larry Oldham.  Bobby, Larry, and other colleagues will share data and experiences with chicken litter use in fertility programs, suggested nutrient management plans in response to crop yields over the past several years, and other timely soil and plant nutrition topics.  In addition, we will have several growers on the program to discuss implementation of different technologies on their farms and how this has contributed to the success of their operations.  Other topics at the 2014 Row Crop Short Course will include:  weed resistance, management of key insect pests in multiple cropping systems, and a farm bill update.  The full program is currently being developed and will be available soon.  Certified Crop Adviser (CCA) continuing education units (CEU) will be available.

Lunch will be provided each day of the Short Course.   Additionally, social mixer and fish fry will be held on the evening of December 1st.  A social event and steak/shrimp dinner will be held at 6 p.m. on the evening of December 2nd.  All meals are provided free of charge if you pre-register prior to November 26th.  As indicated above, registration after November 26th, including at the door is $40 which includes all meals.

A block of rooms is available at the Hilton Garden Inn on a first come, first served basis.  Room cost is $89.00 per night and be sure to mention that you are with the MSU Row Crop Short Course.

Any additional questions may be directed to Darrin Dodds, Kathy Johnson (662-325-2701), Trent Irby, or Erick Larson.  I appreciate your consideration in this matter and look forward to seeing you at the 2014 Row Crop Short Course.
