The 2019 Weed Science Field Day will be held Wednesday, June 19, 2019 at the University of Delaware’s Carvel Research and Education Center, Route 9 (16483 County Seat Highway), Georgetown, DE.

Dr. Alyssa Koehler (plant pathology), Dr. David Owens (entomology), and Dr. Jarrod Miller (agronomy) will also be on hand to discuss their summer research projects as well.

The weather delayed getting some of the plots planted, but the past three weeks have been very productive and we will have lots to view. All of our corn studies will be part of the tour, which includes most of the commercially available herbicides. Some of corn trials include different approaches and timings for herbicide application. We will view trials for full-season no-till and conventional tillage soybean production; including a number of soybean trials with postemergence treatments.

The day will begin with registration beginning at 8:30 at the Grove near the farm buildings and new office building on the north side of the road. We will start to view the plots at 8:45 a.m. Coffee, juices, and donuts will be provided. We will also provide sandwiches for lunch. Pesticide credits and Certified Crop Advisor continuation credits will also be available.
