The next Field Crops Virtual Breakfast will focus on early season weed control

MSU Extension’s Field Crops Virtual Breakfast on April 23 features a discussion on early season weed control with Christy Sprague.

Clean fields
Clean fields often yield the best results. Tune into the MSU Extension Field Crops Virtual Breakfast to review how to achieve excellent early season weed control.

Despite the recent snowfall, fields have been greening up across Michigan with last week’s warmer weather. As farmers get ready to plant, early season weed control will be one of the first tasks of the season. Join us for Michigan State University Extension’s Field Crops Virtual Breakfast at 7 a.m. on Thursday, April 23, 2020, with MSU weed control specialist Christy Sprague, who will discuss burn down herbicide options, early season weed control’s impact on crop yields and the important role temperature can play when herbicides are applied in the spring. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions during the broadcast. MSU agriculture climatologist Jeff Andresen will provide the weekly weather update following Sprague’s presentation.

The Field Crops Virtual Breakfast sessions are held every week during the growing season via Zoom. These virtual meetings take place every Thursday morning from 7-7:30 a.m. from April 16 through Sept. 10, 2020.
