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/
