A series of workshops will be held in March for farmers interested in learning how to use integrated weed management (IWM)) techniques to control troublesome weeds in their fields. This is the fifth year for the workshop series, which is a collaborative effort between the University of Maryland, Virginia Tech, and the University of Delaware.
Education regarding weed identification and integrated management strategies continues to be critically important to enable early intervention and effective management options. 2022 is shaping up to be especially challenging with anticipated shortages of many commonly used herbicides. The 2022 workshop series will provide tactics to manage important weeds given limited herbicide availability and increased input prices. Material covered will target row-crop production systems, but tactics learned may be applicable to other systems.
Pesticide credits will be available for MD, DE, and WV. Two hours of CCA continuing education credits will be offered for each session.
These workshops are free, but participants will need to register at https://go.umd.edu/IWM
