Nebraska Extension Weed Management Field Day June 28 at South Central Agricultural Laboratory
Growers, crop consultants and educators are encouraged to attend Nebraska Extension's Weed Management Field Day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 28, 2023 at the South Central Agricultural Laboratory near Clay Center.
The field day will include on-site demonstrations of new technology and new herbicides for corn, soybean, popcorn and sorghum. An early morning tour will focus on weed management in soybean cover crops, followed by a tour of weed management in field corn, sorghum and popcorn. Field experiments will provide information for herbicide-resistant weed control options with various herbicide programs.
“We have projects to demonstrate how best we can use cover crops such as cereal rye or interseeding small grains (wheat, oat, barley) for integrated management of herbicide-resistant crops in agronomic crops,” said Nebraska Extension Weed Management Specialist Amit Jhala.
Three Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) Continuing Education Units are available in the integrated pest management category.
There is no cost to attend the field day and lunch and UNL Dairy store ice cream will be provided. Participants are asked to register online.
The South Central Agricultural Laboratory is five miles west of the intersection of Highways 14 and 6, or 13 miles east of Hastings on Highway 6. GPS coordinates for the field day site: 40.57539, -98.13776.
