Anyone with an interest in weed management is invited to this year’s Weed Field Day at UD. A variety of herbicide programs for conventional tillage and no-till production are being evaluated. Many of the registered corn and soybean herbicides are being tested, herbicide evaluation for watermelons, weed control programs for snap and lima beans, and a number of studies with traditional soybean herbicide programs are included. We have been fortunate with the weather to have all of the postemergence treatments applied to our corn and most soybean trials. We will have more to view this year than we have had in the recent past.
The 2012 Weed Science Field Day will be held Wednesday, June 27, at the University of Delaware Research and Education Center, Route 9 (16483 County Seat Highway), Georgetown,. The day will begin with registration at 8:15 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.
Continuing education credits for Pesticide Applicators and Certified Crop Advisors will be available.
