Weed Management School offered Jan. 26

Richard Snell
Barton County Extension Agent

Those nasty troublesome weeds! You try washing them out, spraying them out, scrubbing them out, bleaching them out, but they just keep coming back. Well, something like that anyway.

If you would like to learn more about the nature of weeds and how to control them, don’t miss our weed management school coming up on Tuesday, January 26. It will be held at the Hoisington Activity Center, just north of Highway 4 on Susank Road. Registration, coffee and doughnuts will begin at 8:45 with the program starting at 9:00 a.m.

Speakers will be: Dallas Peterson, Extension Weed Scientist with K-State Research & Extension from Manhattan; Curtis Thompson, herbicide specialist from Kansas State University in Manhattan; Bob Wolf, Extension Application Technology Specialist in Agricultural Engineering at K-State and Brian Olson, area Agronomist from Colby.

Topics to be covered will be Integrated Weed Management and Weed Biology, Weed Seedling Identification, Glyphosate Resistance and Management Issues, Weed Control in field Crops, and Spray application Technology.

A folder with weed management information will be provided for participants. The program should qualify for at least 5 hours of pest management Certified Crop Advisor credits and 6 credit hours for commercial pesticide applicator re-certification.

The cost is $20 per person and checks should be made out to the Barton County Extension Council. E-mail me at rsnell@ksu.edu or call 620-793-1910. Send checks to the Barton County Extension Office 1800 12th Street, Great Bend, KS 67530. We need at least 10 producers to sign-up in advance to hold the event.

This meeting is being jointly sponsored by Russell County Extension. The school is open to the public, including farmers, land owners, ag chemical dealers, county weed personnel, crop consultants and others.

Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
