Reminder: Weed Science Field Tour on Wednesday, June 21

We invite you to make plans to attend the 2006 University of Illinois Weed Science Field Day on Wednesday, June 21, at the Crop Sciences Research and Education Center (aka South Farms). The center is located south of the main campus and north of Windsor Road. Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. at the Seed House, and we’ll begin the tour at 8:30 with introductory remarks before carpooling to the field. 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 herbicides. Other highlights include a corn replant study and a demonstration of one-pass programs in corn and soybean. The tour ends with lunch at noon. The $15 registration includes a tour booklet and lunch ticket. CCA credits in IPM will be available. If you have questions or would like additional information, please call (217)333-4424.--Aaron Hager, Dawn Nordby, and Doug Maxwell
