The Purdue Weed Science team is hosting an educational field day for farmers, agricultural industry professionals, Extension educators, consultants and others who apply herbicides.
Due to weather delays in getting plots established, the Purdue Weed Day will be held later this year than in the past. Join us on July 11th at the Throckmorton Purdue Agricultural Center, 8343 U.S. 231 S., Lafayette for coffee and donuts and to view our local research.
“Highlights for the event will be Enlist, Xtend, and Liberty Link soybean weed control programs and exploratory work with herbicide tolerance in industrial hemp,” said Bill Johnson, Purdue professor of weed science. “In addition, we will have information on waterhemp and giant ragweed control, weed control with cover crops in corn and soybean, and other projects our graduate students are working on.”
Registration will begin at 8:00 AM EDT, and the program will begin at 8:30. We will view the plots on the west side of Highway 231 in the early part of the morning, and at a second site 1 mile east of TPAC during the latter part of the morning. The Throckmorton PAC farm is located approximately 5 miles south of Lafayette on the corner of county road 800S and U.S. 231 South.
For those attending the 2019 Purdue Weed Day at Throckmorton, we have applied for 3 CCH’s for category 1. Please register HERE. You may also call Lisa Gross at 765-494-9871.
