The University of Delaware, Bayer CropScience, and the Delaware Soybean Board are holding a field day to highlight ways to better control weeds without pushing weed resistance to herbicides.

Respect the Rotation is an initiative to elevate the importance and adoption of herbicide diversity and integrated weed management.

Rotate modes of action – reduce the selection pressure of a single mode of action by using multiple modes of action during both the growing season and from year to year.

Rotate crops - crop rotation diversifies weed management tools.

Rotate herbicide-tolerant traits – alternate herbicide-tolerant (HT) traits and/or use HT trait stacks for more efficient herbicide rotation.

Field plots and demonstrations on rotations for integrated weed management will be discussed. For more information contact Mark VanGessel 302/856-7303. CCA and pesticide credits will be available.

There will be a free BBQ Dinner after the meeting.

There is no cost to attend, but please RSVP by August 15 so that we can prepare enough meals for everyone. RSVP to Karen Adams at (302) 856-7303 ext 540 or adams@udel.edu.
