Registration begins at 8:15 at the Grove near the farm buildings.

A variety of herbicide programs for conventional tillage and no-till production are being evaluated. Many of the registered corn and soybean herbicides will be shown on the tour. The strengths and weaknesses of various approaches to weed management will be discussed. In addition, we have a number of trials integrating cover crops with chemical weed control. Herbicide evaluations for sorghum, watermelon, sweet corn and other vegetables are underway but these will not be part of the tour.

Lunch will follow the tour.

Recertification credit for pesticide applicators and Certified Crop Advisor are also available
