Are you looking for new ways to manage resistant weeds or are you just looking for something to do the week after Farm Science Review? I encourage you to attend the Midwest Mechanical Weed Control Field Day on September 27, 2023, held this year in Wooster, Ohio at the CFAES Wooster main campus research farm.
The Land Connection partnered with OSU Extension, local farmers, dealers, and manufacturers for this tri-state event which has both educational sessions and in-field equipment demonstrations. For farmers who want to learn more about all manner of mechanical weed control equipment, this is a great opportunity. There will be weeding tools demonstrated for all scales of production – hand tools, two-wheel tractors, vegetable cultivator demos (9), and row-crop cultivator demos (10), including camera-guided and autonomous cultivators from companies such as Carbon Robotics. There will also be a demo of a Kubota autonomous tractor mowing a field. Oftentimes farmers who are considering investing in mechanical weeding tools appreciate seeing them in the field first, and they can do that here. Hope to see you there.
