Dry weather in northeast Louisiana during the early summer came to an end and drove participants indoors for the annual interagency rolling crop field tour held July 17 at the LSU AgCenter Northeast Research Station near St. Joseph.

“Although the rain canceled the field portion of the tour, all the speakers responded with presentations leading to questions and discussion relevant to emerging issues in the region,” said Dennis Burns, the AgCenter agent who coordinated the event.

The event drew more than 40 participants who heard from experts from the LSU AgCenter, U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service and Farm Service Agency, Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry, and Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries on common concerns faced by producers.
