Lincoln, Neb. — Growers, crop consultants and educators are encouraged to attend Nebraska Extension's Weed Management Field Day from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 29 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, soybeans and sorghum. An early morning tour will focus on weed management in soybeans followed by a tour of weed management in corn and sorghum. Field experiments will provide information for weed control options using several herbicide programs.
"Several new herbicides and technologies are coming to the market, including Enlist Corn and Soybean, Roundup Ready 2 Xtend Soybean, Balance Bean and INZEN sorghum," said extension weed management specialist Amit Jhala.
The field day will provide an opportunity to identify several broadleaf and grass weeds commonly found in corn and soybean fields in Nebraska.
Three Certified Crop Advisor credits are available in the integrated pest management category.
There is no cost to attend the field day, but participants are asked to register at http://agronomy.unl.edu/weedresistmgt.
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.
