Due to the cold, wet weather and slow crop growth, the annual Michigan State University Weed Tour has been rescheduled to Wednesday, July 10, 2019, at the MSU Agronomy Farm, 4450 Beaumont Road, Lansing, MI 48910. Registration and check-in begin at 8:30 a.m. with coffee, juice and donuts. The field tour begins at 9:30 a.m.

The tour will provide opportunities to look at research plots and learn about new weed control research conducted by the MSU Weed Science Program. Participants can see how their current corn and soybean herbicide programs fit into the broad spectrum of commercial programs available. In addition, trials conducted with some of the new herbicide-resistant soybean traits will be included. The morning tour ends with lunch.

After lunch, the afternoon tours will begin at 1 p.m. with two concurrent sessions:

  • Weed Control in Horticultural Crops, located at MSU Horticulture Farm on College Road, south of Jolly Road.
  • Non-GMO Soybean Weed Control Tour, located at the MSU Agronomy Farm.

Pre-registration for the tour is $25 per person, which includes a tour booklet and lunch. On-site registration is $35. Register online at 2019 MSU Weed Tour.
