The annual Mizzou Pest Management Field Day will be Friday July 7th at the Bradford Research and Extension Center, approximately 8 miles east of Columbia, Missouri.

Registration will begin at 8:00 a.m. with opening comments by Dr. Kevin Bradley at 8:30. The morning will include guided wagon tours with stops that feature presentations of research results by university-trained scientists.

Weed management research topics that will be discussed this year include weed seed contamination in commercial mixes; stewardship of dicamba; and the integration of cover crops in soybean production.

The guided tour will also include a variety of research results and topics pertaining to the management of herbicide-resistant weeds such as studies on harvest weed seed destruction techniques, comparisons of new herbicide-resistant soybean systems, and many other topics.

Lunch will be served at noon after which attendees will have the opportunity to view plots that showcase a variety of herbicide treatments and weed management programs for use in corn, soybean, or grain sorghum. These plots will be clearly labeled and mapped out so that they can be viewed easily.

Registration for the field day will be $10.00 to cover cost associated with lunch and refreshments.
