Join a Farmer Forum on Drones and Weed Management

Does it seem like a new precision weed management technology is popping up just as frequently as weeds do in your fields? With the rapid pace of innovation in this area, it can be hard to stay informed of the most recent developments. In response to frequent questions about drone technology, the GROW network is hosting its first Farmer Forum of 2024 on Monday, April 15th at 2 pm ET to provide some insight into how drones are being used for weed management.

Listen in – and bring your questions – as panelists from across the country speak about their experiences managing weeds with drones and following best management practices for this developing industry. Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) CEU credits will be available.

GROW, or Getting Rid Of Weeds, is a national network of weed scientists, extension educators, and outreach specialists working together to develop best practices and digital tools to support the use of integrated weed management to combat the herbicide resistance epidemic. GROW Farmer Forums are a series of webinars that allow farmers that are adopting these practices and tools to share their experiences with their peers that might be interested in trying out something new.
