The annual Mizzou Pest Management Field Day will be Tuesday July 10th 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 including talks by new state extension plant pathologist Kaitlyn Bissonnette and extension entomologist Kevin Rice.
Weed management research topics that will be discussed this year include the latest dicamba research; weather information; cover crops—specifically integration with residual herbicides in soybean production as well as cover crop research related to weed control; and other weed-related 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 and soybean. 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.
