Judd Hill Field Day is Thursday
The 12th annual Judd Hill Cotton Technology Field Day will be Thursday, Aug. 31, at the Judd Hill Plantation south of Trumann. Field day activities will feature cotton demonstration plots showcasing the latest biotechnology and many improved cotton varieties. A complimentary lunch will be served after noon and participants will hear keynote speaker U.S. Rep. Marion Berry. ASU has had a long-term relationship with the Judd Hill Foundation to promote mutual research interests. In 1994 and in 2004, respectively, the Foundation established two academic chairs at ASU, the Judd Hill Chair in Environmental Biology and the Judd Hill Chair in Agricultural Biotechnology. The Judd Hill Foundation was established upon the death of plantation owners Sam and Esther Chapin for the purpose of encouraging research and development of progressive farming techniques. For details about the field day or Judd Hill, click on the Judd Hill Plantation web site.
