Weeds, herbicides and the effectiveness of herbicides to control weeds are topics of agronomic and economic importance to farmers and agribusinesses. It is so important that Iowa State University Extension and Outreach field agronomists are hosting Weeds Week Aug. 3-7.
The annual spring field day for the Iowa State University Southeast Iowa Research Farm will be held June 26 near Crawfordsville, beginning at 1 p.m.
The June 22 field day in Muscatine County will include a discussion about strip-tillage crop management as well as tractor fuel saving tips. The Lil’ Conservation Station— a portable rainfall simulator-- will demonstrate the effects of rainfall on different soil surface scenarios.
