During the 2019 growing season, an average of 35% of the fields in southeast Michigan did not get planted, allowing weeds to thrive and set seeds; as a result, weed control will be the biggest challenge farmers will face in 2020.

This one-day herbicide school that will give farmers and the local ag industry the right tools to control weeds in prevented planted acres. Participants will learn how to delay the evolution of herbicide resistance and pair the correct herbicide to individual weed problems while controlling. 

During this state of the art meeting, flats with weeds and crops will be planted and sprayed before the meeting to demonstrate herbicide injury symptoms. A variety of live weeds will be to shown to participants to demonstrate how to identify weeds in the field. MSU faculty and Extension Educators will talk about what tools farmers could use in 2020 to minimize weed pressure on prevented planting fields. The meeting will be held at the MSU Extension Office at 705 N Zeeb Rd, Ann Arbor, MI 48103, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. CCA and RUP credits will be offered. Registration is $15.00 and lunch will be provided.
