DUMAS, Ark. – The 2017 edition of the Tri-State Soybean Forum is set for Jan. 6, in Dumas, said Chuck Capps, event chairman and Desha County extension staff chair for the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture.  

The forum will be held at the Dumas Community Center, 18 Belmont Drive. Doors open at 8 a.m. with registration and lunch will be provided. 

Each year the forum draws hundreds of people from Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi to hear top speakers talk about research and events affecting the soybean industry. 

“We are currently inviting sponsors to participate,” Capps said. “This is one of the premier pre-growing season events for soybean producers in Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi.” 

Sponsorship costs $300 and includes a 30-inch by 8-foot table and space to display products or services. Sponsorships help fund scholarships and a contribution to each state’s county extension association. 

For more information about sponsorships, contact Bob Stark, Tri-State Forum secretary/treasurer, at stark@uamont.edu or 870-460-1414.
