SU Ag Center set for the 20th Annual Morehouse Parish Farm Field Day

Baton Rouge, La. – The Southern University Ag Center, in conjunction with the LSU AgCenter, the Morehouse Black Farmers and Landowners Association, and the National Black Growers Council will hold its 20th Annual Morehouse Farm Field Day on July 22, 2022.


The event will be held at 8 a.m. at Hills Farm, located at 13944 Horace Hill, in Bonita, LA.


The field day will include presentations on the importance of wills, USDA Updates, carbon credits, FMC herbicides, nematodes in soybeans, disease management for corn, and field tours of corn and soybean productions.


“The field day will have the new agricultural technology and information to help small farmers expand the life of their farms,” said Odis Hill, SU Ag Center Assistant County Agent. “The larger agricultural technology companies will be bringing information on new varieties and the new herbicides. The USDA NRCS will also be in attendance to discuss some of their programs such as cover crops and carbon. Farmers can actually get paid for carbon if they use cover crops,” added Hill.


Representatives from the SU and LSU Ag Centers will also be in attendance during the field day.
