Weeds Week 2016

Educational programs for farmers and retailers with a focus on understanding weed resistance and a hands-on, practical approach to developing long-term weed management plans that work.


Goals

  • evaluate the herbicide sites of action that are effective on the weeds present
  • develop a long-term weed management plan that can be implemented the following year
  • understand the importance of cultural and mechanical options in a diverse program
  • recognize the importance of developing field-specific management programs

Each session is a combination of presentations, small group discussions, problem solving, and hands-on planning through a series of worksheets and materials developed for Weeds Week. Sessions are led by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Field Agronomists. Each location will also feature tours of demonstration plots established to support the goals and objectives of the Weeds Week program.


Continuing Education

This program qualifies for 4.0 pest management continuing education credits for Iowa Certified Crop Advisers, subject to approval.
