This week I’ll be traveling out to southwest Louisiana for a couple of meetings. Tuesday night is the annual Louisiana rice council and Louisiana rice growers association meeting at the International Rice Festival Building (717 W. Mill St. in Crowley, La). The evening will begin at 5 pm. I am looking forward to catching up with everyone at the meeting. Also hope to learn more about economics from the keynote speaker, Jim Wiesemeyer, VP, Informa Economics, Washington Bureau.
After the meeting I’ll head to Lake Charles for the Louisiana Agricultural Aviation Annual Convention. This meeting begins today and will run through lunch on Wednesday. It’s being held at L’auberge du lac Casino in Lake Charles. Wednesday morning I’ll give a presentation about the rice water weevil demonstration.
I hope your week is starting off well – the weather certainly is beautiful!
