Issue No. 13, Article 1/June 20, 2008
Reminder: Weed Science Field Day at Urbana
We would like to take this opportunity to reextend the invitation to attend the 2008 University of Illinois Weed Science Field Day on Wednesday, June 25, at the Crop Sciences Research and Education Center, immediately south of the main campus. Coffee and refreshments will be available under the shade trees near the Seed House beginning at 7:30 a.m. The tour will provide ample opportunities 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 official tour will conclude around noon, but note that there will not be an on-site lunch this year.
The $10 fee for the tour will help defray the cost of the field tour book and refreshments. We will apply for 2 hours of CCA credit under the IPM category. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact us at 217-333-4424 or 217-265-0344.
The University of Illinois will host a number of other field days during 2008 (see the schedule below). Speakers at each event will address current challenges in pest management and crop production, and attendees will have ample opportunity to ask questions and gain new insights.
More details about content will be available prior to each event. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend one or more of these educational opportunities.--Aaron Hager and Emerson Nafziger
