The Purdue Weed Science team is hosting an educational field day for farmers, agricultural industry professionals, Extension educators, consultants and others who apply herbicides.

Purdue Weed Day will be held June 24th, 2021 at the Throckmorton Purdue Agricultural Center, 8343 U.S. 231 S., Lafayette.

“Highlights for the event will be Enlist, Xtend, and Liberty Link soybean weed control programs and research updates from our graduate students,” said Bill Johnson, Purdue professor of weed science. “In addition, we will have information on waterhemp and giant ragweed control, and weed control with cover crops in corn and soybean.”

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.
