The LSU Ag Center is continuing its series of field days in Acadia Parish this week.

The event is held to help rice farmers learn about the latest practices to improve their crop production.

Experts gave presentations on development fertility and controlling problems.

"This is a time when our growers and consultants can get a closer look of the different herbicide technologies that are out there and available to producers," said Dustin Harrell, Research Coordinator, LSU Ag. "It’s probably one of the highlights of the weed research for rice in the state."
