Mark your calendars for this Monday, September 9. Our Eddie Griffis tells us about a big ag farm tour and what you can learn from the agenda.
"We have a couple of field days that will be coming up next week that we want to make people aware of. Go out and enjoy these field days and see what they're doing in some of these other counties. First I want to talk about the Dawson County ag tour. That will be September 9 and registration will begin at 8:30 Monday morning. September 9 is the annual Dawson County farm tour and agriculture appreciation day. Participants are invited for coffee and donuts provided by the Mesa Underground Water Conservation District and it will be at the Forest Park Community Center on south 8th street and Houston Avenue in Lamesa. The actual tour will begin at 9 a.m. And a catered meal from Bush's chicken will be served at noon. Points of interest on the tour will be Dr. Wayne Keeling, he'll be talking about agronomy and weed science. Dr. Terri Wheeler, she'll be talking about cotton plant pathology. Dr. Jason Woodward, also a plant pathologist will be out there to visit with you and Dr. Mark Kelley our cotton specialist. Again that's the Dawson County Ag Tour September 9."
