Growers can get the latest information on strategies for dealing with weeds during the MSU Weed Tour, set for July 1.

Hosted by the Department of Crop and Soil Sciences, the event includes a tour of weed management plots at the MSU Crops Laboratory at the corner of Beaumont Road and Mt. Hope Road and at the MSU Horticulture Farm.

Participants will see firsthand how various weed control methods work and which ones are best for high-density weed areas. The tour features information on weed management and other crop protection and crop management strategies.

Participants can also compare their favorite corn and soybean herbicide programs to other commercial programs and evaluate how new transgenic crops interact with weed management strategies.
