2017 MSU Weed Tour scheduled for June 28
Participants can compare herbicide programs, evaluate weed management strategies and tour MSU research plots.
Michigan State University Extension invites you to the annual MSU Weed Tour Wednesday, June 28, 2017, beginning at the MSU Agronomy Farm, 4450 Beaumont Road, Lansing, MI 48910. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. with the field tour kicking off at 9:30 a.m.
The tour will provide ample opportunity to look at research plots and participate in some short field presentations. Be sure to bring a hat and sun screen! Participants can compare their favorite corn and soybean herbicide programs to other commercial programs and check out some of the new herbicide-resistant crops and how these crops fit with overall weed management strategies. The morning tour ends with lunch.
The afternoon tours will begin at 1 p.m. with two concurrent tours:
- Weed Control in Horticultural Crops, located at MSU Horticulture Farm on College Road, south of Jolly Road
- Non-GMO Soybean Weed Control Tour, located at MSU Agronomy Farm
We hope to see you there!
