LITTLE ROCK — Experts with the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture will be conducting a series of instructional clinics across Arkansas, intended to keep growers abreast of the latest technical and regulatory changes in spray application technology. 

Jason Davis, extension application technologist with the Division of Agriculture said keeping up with the newest available information on herbicide applications is key to a successful farm operation. 

“With the anticipated challenges of the coming spray season it is more important than ever for applicators to have the best and most up-to-date information available,” Davis said. “As in years past, we have scheduled several sprayer clinics targeting these changes. Each clinic will provide valuable information and demonstrations to help applicators make the best decisions in the 2017 spray season.” 

There are now five clinics scheduled for February and March: 

  • Wednesday, February 22nd at the Men’s Center in McGehee
  • Thursday, February 23th at the Rice Research Center in Stuttgart
  • Tuesday, March 7th at ASU Newport in Newport
  • Wednesday, March 8th at the Cotton Research Station in Marianna
  • Thursday, March 9th at the Greene County Fairgrounds in Paragould  

Registration for each clinic begins at 8:30 a.m. Sessions begin at 9 a.m., and conclude with lunch. 

The clinics will also offer nozzle evaluations, so attendees should feel free to bring in any nozzles they wish to have inspected.
