CROWLEY – The LSU AgCenter will conduct a series of rice clinics in January and February throughout the rice-growing areas of Louisiana to help farmers get ready for the upcoming crop year.
Farmers will be able to get advice about key decisions that must be made early in the year, including variety selection and field preparations for the 2017 crop, said Steve Linscombe, director of the LSU AgCenter H. Rouse Caffey Rice Research Station.

Winter vegetable gardening in Louisiana is tremendously rewarding. Many of the vegetables that we planted earlier are ready to harvest, and it is important to harvest them at the proper stage for best results. Here are a few guidelines for some of the most commonly grown crops.
Root crops are harvested when the root is the proper size. Usually, the top of the root is readily visible at ground level, but it is easy enough to push aside the soil at the base of the leaves to check on the size of the root.
Eunice High School held its annual Christmas Toy Drive for Eunice High’s needy families. Jason Miller, a senior at Eunice High, performed the drive and all details as his senior project. EHS sponsors of the drive are LaRhonda Simpson and Keenya Alfred. Collected items were seven bicycles, shoes, children’s clothing, Barbies, Baby Alive dolls, Ninja turtles, dinosaurs, Minecraft video games, remote control cars, and much more. “It was a huge success and we would like to thank our principal Mitch Fontenot for his continued support this year and the past years,” said Alfred.
