2022 Ohio Weed University

Are you concerned about the effectiveness of your herbicide program?  Want to sharpen your weed id skills?  Not sure which nozzles provide the best control options?  Is herbicide resistance REALLY that big of a problem?  These topics and many more will be discussed at the 2022 Ohio Weed University.

Are you concerned about palmer amaranth?  Did you know that palmer amaranth, waterhemp and other invasive weeds can now be found in most Ohio Counties?  One female palmer amaranth plant can produce 1 million seeds.  I have it … now how do I control it?  How did I get it, how is it spread?  These issues will be discussed at the 2022 Ohio Weed University.

This high-impact program is designed for producers wanting to be on the “Cutting Edge” of crop production for their operations. Topics Include: Local Weed Populations and Late Season Weed Issues; Hot Topics in Weed Control; Weed Biology and Control Strategies; Cover Crop Management in Forages; and Evaluating Your Herbicide Program. Hands-on activities include Weed identification utilizing live plants at various growth stages; Nozzle selection and calibration utilizing a spray table; and Tank mixing order for different products.  Featured Ohio State University speakers include Dr. Mark Loux, Alyssa Essman and various Extension Educators.
