AgriLife centennial celebration Sept. 17

All those interested in South Plains agriculture should mark their calendars for the centennial celebration Sept. 17 at the Texas AgriLife Research and Extension Center, said Dr. Jaroy Moore, resident director of research at the facilities.

The center is located at 1102 E. Farm to Market Road 1294 north of Lubbock.

“Since this center was founded in 1909, it has been home to some of the most widely adapted crop-related practices and plant-breeding innovations found anywhere,” Moore said. “Many of these discoveries are still used by farmers today in West Texas.

“We're holding this celebration and field day to highlight some of those historic practices and to share with the public what we are doing now to help producers for years to come,” he said.
