Reminder: Weed Science Field Day at Urbana
We would like to take this opportunity to reiterate the invitation to attend the 2009 University of Illinois Weed Science Field Day, to be held Wednesday, July 8, at the Crop Sciences Research and Education Center, located immediately south of the main campus. Coffee and refreshments will be available under the shade trees near the Seed House beginning at 8:00 a.m. The tour will provide ample opportunity to look at research plots and interact with weed science faculty, staff, and graduate students. Participants can compare their favorite corn and soybean herbicide programs to other commercial programs and get an early look at some new herbicide active ingredients. The tour will conclude around noon with a catered barbeque lunch at the Seed House.
Cost for the tour is $10, which helps defray the cost of the tour book and refreshments. We will apply for 2 hours of CCA credit in the IPM category. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact us at 217-333-4424 or 217-265-0344.--Aaron Hager
