Lincoln, Neb. —Growers, crop consultants and educators are encouraged to attend Nebraska Extension's Weed Management Field Day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wed., June 26, 2024, 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 and sorghum. An early morning tour will focus on weed management in soybean and sorghum followed by a tour of weed management in field corn. Field experiments will provide information for 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 weed suppression," said agronomy and horticulture associate department head and professor, and Nebraska Extension weed management specialist Amit Jhala. “New herbicides and technologies are coming to the market, including See and Spray Precision Sprayer, iGrowth and INZEN sorghum.”

Attending this field day will provide an opportunity to stakeholders to learn about management of herbicide-resistant weeds.

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, but participants are asked to pre-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 are 40.57539, -98.13776.
