Herbicide resistance meetings return at ISU
In response to rapidly expanding problems associated with herbicide resistant weeds, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will conduct a second series of meetings in November and December to address the issue. The meetings will provide information about the causes of herbicide-resistant weed populations, objectively evaluate weed management programs currently used in Iowa, and support the development of durable weed management programs. Registration at each location opens at 8:30 a.m., the program begin at 9 a.m. and will conclude with a noon meal.
There is no cost to attend this program; however, advance registration is appreciated for meeting logistics and lunch counts. Additional information regarding the program and online registration is available at www.aep.iastate.edu/weeds.
