Weed science program to be held July 30

UNION HILL – The University of Illinois weed science program will hold a field tour and discussions July 30 at the Palmer Amaranth research site in Union Hill.

The site is about a half of a mile east of the intersection of county roads 14000 west and 3000 north near the community of Union Hill.

The tour will provide an opportunity for farmers, input suppliers, and others to have a first-hand encounter with a Palmer Amaranth weed population thriving there, according to a news release. The tour will feature four presentations by weed scientists that highlight the identification, biology, and management of Palmer Amaranth, and also will provide ample opportunity to view the numerous research plots. 

Participants will receive a tour booklet that contains field research protocols and maps to help guide them through the research plots. The tour will begin at 9 a.m. and conclude with lunch at noon. To register, visit bayerrespecttherotation.com. There is no fee to attend, and credits for certified crop advisers will be available.
