Herbicide Resistance Meetings

February 1, 2012

by Mike Owen and Bob Hartzler, Department of Agronomy

In response to rapidly expanding problems associated with herbicide resistant weeds, ISU Extension and Outreach will conduct a series of meetings in March to address the issue. The meetings will provide information about the causes of herbicide-resistant weed populations, objectively evaluate weed management programs currently used in Iowa, and support the development of durable weed management programs. The meetings will begin at 9 a.m. and conclude with a noon meal. 

There is no cost to attend this program due to funding provided by several partners; however, advance registration is appreciated for meeting logistics and lunch counts. Additional information regarding the program and online registration is available at http://www.aep.iastate.edu/weeds/
