The UD Weed Science Field Day will begin with registration 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 am.
The weather has been a challenge to get plots planted. 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 of herbicide application. Most of our soybean trials were recently planted, but we will view various burndown trials for full-season no-till production. We will also talk about the various cover crop trials. Our trials with Xtend soybeans, Liberty Link, and Enlist soybeans will not be at a stage to view until later this summer.
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.
Dr. Michael Flessner, VA Tech, will hold a field day on Tuesday, June 19th at Blackstone, VA
Dwight Lingenfelter, Penn State, will hold a field day on Thursday, June 21st at Landisville, PA
