We invite you to attend the annual University of Illinois Weed Science Field Day, to be held at the Crop Sciences Research and Education Center (CSREC) on June 25. The CSREC is located just south of St. Mary's Road in Urbana. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m., with the field tour kicking off at 8:30 a.m. The tour will provide ample opportunity to look at research plots and participate in some short field presentations (be sure to bring a hat and sunscreen!). Participants can compare their favorite corn and soybean herbicide programs to other commercial programs; get an "early" look at some new herbicides; evaluate some new programs (such as fall-applied herbicide programs); and interact with weed science faculty, staff, and graduate students. The tour ends with lunch at 12:00 noon. Registration for the Weed Science Field Day tour is $15 per person, which includes a tour booklet and a lunch ticket.
If you are unable to attend the field day in Urbana, a twilight tour will be given on Wednesday, July 9 at the Northern Illinois Research and Education Center near DeKalb. The tour is free, and registration will begin at 5:00 p.m. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please call (217)333-4424.--Christy Sprague and Aaron Hager
