2011 Weed Science Field Day

May 25, 2011

By Mike Owen, Department of Agronomy

The Iowa State University Weed Science Field Day will be held on June 23 at the Curtiss Farm on South State Street in Ames, Iowa. The Curtiss Farm is easily accessible from Hwy 30;  exit at University Avenue, go south to the four-way stop, turn west to the next stop, turn north on South State Street and the farm is on the west. Follow the cinder road west through the farm to the registration tent.

Registration for the event will begin at 8 a.m. with brief remarks prior to the self-guided tour.  Registration will be $20 and cover refreshments and a field book that details all of the demonstrations and research at the Curtiss Farm location, as well as the other locations throughout Iowa. While the field day has historically been for the AgChem Industry, growers, seed dealers and agchem operators are welcome and will find much that will be of interest. If you have questions, contact Mike Owen at 515-294-5936 or mdowen@iastate.edu.
