54th Annual Field Day Event

Fisher Delta Research Center 54th Annual Field Day

Wednesday, September 2

Fisher Delta Research Center 147 State Hwy T, Portageville, MO

On Sept. 2, FDRC will welcome farmers, producers and landowners for the 54th Annual Fisher Delta Research Center Field Day to learn more about the latest in agriculture from experts and specialists.

The Missouri Pollinator Conservancy Program (MPCP) is a collaborative effort between DriftWatch, the University of Missouri, and the Missouri Department of Agriculture.

The MPCP gives spatial and visual tools to alert pesticide applicators to nearby beehives.

Beekeepers are encouraged to register their hives on DriftWatch website for Missouri.  Participation is voluntary, and beekeepers can limit what information (i.e. map coordinates of beehives) is available through public viewing. Beehive locations are kept confidential by a license agreement between pesticide applicators and use of DriftWatch™. Beekeepers do not need to worry about their personal information being sold or distributed without consent.
