More than 80 researchers and producers are slated to participate in the 9th annual National Conservation Systems Cotton and Rice Conference at Tunica, Miss., Feb. 1-2.

Additionally, the conference has added roundtable discussions with leading experts serving as facilitators.

The conference, which alternates yearly between Texas and Mississippi, will be held at the Grand Casino Conference Center at Tunica, Miss.

“The subject matter for the roundtable discussions will be more focused in nature,” says John LaRose, president of MidAmerica Farm Publications, which sponsors the conference.
