Michigan State University Extension invites you to attend the annual MSU Weed Tour on Wednesday, June 26, beginning at the MSU Crops Field Lab (Beaumont Road and Mount Hope Road on MSU campus). Registration begins at 9 a.m. with the field tour kicking off at 9:30 a.m.
The tour will provide ample opportunity to look at research plots and participate in some short field presentations. (Be sure to bring a hat and sun screen!) Participants can compare their favorite corn and soybean herbicide programs to other commercial programs and evaluate how new transgenic crops interact with weed management strategies. The morning tour ends with lunch.
The afternoon tours will begin at 1 p.m. with two concurrent tours: The Weed Control in Horticultural Crops Tour (MSU Horticulture Farm on College Road, south of Jolly Road) and the Non-GMO Soybean Weed Control Tour (MSU Crops Field Lab at Beaumont Road and Mount Hope road on MSU campus).
We hope to see you there!
Drs. Sprague and Zandstra's work is funded in part by MSU's AgBioResearch.
