Iowa State University Extension & Outreach: Story County

There’s a reason we do what we do in Iowa State University Extension and Outreach: We want a strong Iowa. That’s why we partner with Iowans and harness the resources of our university for communities and farmers to thrive, for families and children to be healthy, and eventually to turn the world over to the next generation better than we found it. Because a strong Iowa is what we all want.

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will host a herbicide resistance management field day on June 15, from 1-3 p.m. at the A. Knaphus farm located one mile south of McCallsburg on County Road S27.

Herbicide resistance in weeds is a major challenge faced by all producers. When weeds cannot be killed, farmers are often required to apply additional herbicide or adopt different management strategies that may cost them more money. Recent research at Iowa State showed that a change in corn herbicide program could reduce waterhemp emergence in soybean by 75%. This field day aims to educate farmers on effectively managing weeds before they become a major problem.
