Arizona Grower Field Day
Join us for the collaboratively-supported virtual Guayule Field Day!
While we won’t actually be in the field, we will be discussing the exciting breakthroughs in the field of guayule production for the arid Southwest. Bridgestone researchers will provide updates on the future of guayule and agronomic improvements being made to grow the crop.
University of Arizona Cooperative Extension Entomologist Dr. Peter Ellsworth will discuss strategies for controlling early season insect pests of this desert shrub. SBAR-supported research on weed control during guayule establishment, and guayule crop budgets / economic farm analysis will round out the program.
We invite everyone interested in desert agriculture to join our Zoom meeting and learn more about this intriguing crop and how it could soon be part of your crop rotation. Registration is required, and links to the meeting will be sent with your confirmation.
