Growers, crop consultants and educators are encouraged to attend Nebraska Extension’s Weed Management Field Day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, June 23, 2021 at the South Central Agricultural Laboratory near Clay Center.
The field day will include on-site demonstrations of new technology and new herbicides for corn, soybean, sorghum and sweet corn. An early morning tour will focus on weed management in soybean and sorghum, followed by a tour of weed management in field corn and sweet corn. Field experiments will provide information for weed control options with various herbicide programs.
“Several new herbicides and technologies are coming to the market, including Enlist corn and soybean, XtendFlex soybean, iGrowth and INZEN sorghum,” said Extension Weed Management Specialist Amit Jhala.
Three Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) Continuing Education Units are available in the integrated pest management category.
There is no cost to attend the field day, but participants are asked to preregister on the Weed Management Field Day website.
