2024 Abstract - RICE SESSION - CHECK-OFF PROGRAMS AND ACCOUNTABILITY: Agriculture check-off programs date back over a half century, and today have accumulated over 750 million dollars in resources. But the programs have been the source of controversy in recent years, and Jim Whitaker will engage his audience asking this question…Where does all this money go? He’ll discuss USDA oversight practices, just who the decision makers are when the money is spent, and after a top-down review of check-off policy, determine whether or not they work for the farmer’s benefit. He’ll be joined by Dr. Jarrod Hardke of the University of Arkansas. 2024 Abstract - RICE SESSION - GETTING MORE OUT OF YOUR FERTILIZER: REDUCING FIXATION: How can we make your fertilizer dollar go farther? Robb Dedman, Dr Ronnie Helms, Jim Whitaker, and Casey Hook will discuss how new polymer technology can significantly reduce phosphorus fixation. How does it affect overall yield and crop performance in rice, corn, and soybeans. 2024 Abstract - ROUNDTABLE SESSION - UTILIZING ROGUE® SC IN HERBICIDE PROGRAMS FOR SUCCESSFUL WEED CONTROL IN SOUTHERN US RICE: This session will concentrate on the utilization of Rogue® SC into successful rice herbicide programs in the Southern US. Rogue® SC is a novel HPPD inhibiting mode of action rice herbicide and the only HPPD inhibiting herbicides used in Southern US rice. Rogue® SC, a pro-herbicide, is active only in floodwater and has no activity when applied to plant foliage or soil. Rogue® SC best management practices developed from research cooperators and on-farm learnings discussed in this session can provide useful insights on herbicide program planning, herbicide application, weed spectrum, and floodwater management.
