The field day will be at the Curtiss Farm on South State Street in Ames.  Registration will begin at 8:30 AM with a brief program at 9:00 AM.  Refreshments will be provided and is free and open to all with no registration cost.  The field day is an opportunity to do a "self-guided" tour of the research farm plots with program staff and leaders on hand to answer questions.  All attendees will have a field book that describes experiments available to them.  While the farm is a bit delayed in planting and spraying operations, given the wet weather this year, the trials are a great opportunity to evaluate herbicide weed management with these unusual conditions.  If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact ISU Extension Weed Scientist Prashant Jha at pjha@iastate.edu or 515-294-7028.
