The 2005 Weed Science Field Day is scheduled for June 23 at the Curtiss Farm on South State Street in Ames. The self-guided field day will begin with registration at 8:30 a.m. and introductory comments will be provided at 9 a.m. Healthy snacks, coffee, and other beverages will be available.
The field day will allow the attendees to review herbicide demonstrations, specialty crop herbicide tolerance trials, no-tillage weed management systems, and herbicide application timing studies. While the Weed Science Field Day has traditionally been directed more for representatives of the ag-chemical industry, it is open to anyone who has an interest in new weed management practices. There is a $20 registration fee, which covers refreshments and a field book. For further information, contact Mike Owen at 515-294-5936 or e-mail at email@example.com .
