For field crop growers throughout much of Michigan, it has been a late, wet and challenging spring. The latest USDA-NASS Michigan Crop Progress report indicates that as of May 19, 2019, 19% corn is planted with 1% emerged, and 10% soybean is planted with 1% emerged. Due to this delay, many critical weed control decisions will need to be made within the next week. Join us for our the Field Crops Virtual Breakfast at 7 a.m. on Thursday, June 6, 2019, via Zoom with Michigan State University Extension weed specialist Erin Burns to learn about weed control considerations for a late spring.

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions during the meeting.
