Mizzou Pest Management Field Day set for July 9

The annual Mizzou Pest Management Field Day will be Tuesday, July 9, at the Bradford Research and Extension Center, approximately eight miles east of Columbia, Missouri.

Registration will begin at 8 a.m. with opening comments by state extension weed scientist Kevin Bradley at 8:30 a.m.. The morning will include guided wagon tours with stops that feature presentations by university-trained scientists including state extension plant pathologist Kaitlyn Bissonnette and entomologist Kevin Rice.

Weed science topics will include the Enlist technology, integration of chemical and non-chemical methods for weed control, herbicide injury to ornamentals and fruiting plants, the latest dicamba results, and other weed-related topics.

Lunch will be served at noon after which attendees will have the opportunity to view plots that showcase a variety of herbicide treatments and weed management programs for use in corn and soybean. These plots will be clearly labeled and mapped out so that they can be viewed easily.

Registration for the field day will be $10.00 to cover cost associated with lunch and refreshments.
