Specific field sessions include:

  • Weed identification - identify more than 60 living weed exhibits and review biology and control
  • Herbicide mode of action - identify herbicide classes by examining crop and weed injury symptoms
  • Corn and wheat – learn about growth stages and late-season management strategies
  • Insect management - review current insect concerns
  • Row crop plant nutrition – learn about the current situation and strategies to maintain yield through harvest

Instructors for the field school are Patrick Beauzay, NDSU entomology research specialist; Greg Endres, NDSU Extension area agronomist; Dave Franzen, NDSU Extension soils specialist; Richard Zollinger, NDSU Extension weeds specialist; Rod Lym, NDSU weed scientist; Jan Knodel, NDSU Extension entomologist; and Joel Ransom, NDSU Extension agronomist.

A total of 50 participants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants will receive reference materials, refreshments and a noon meal. Certified crop advisers participating in the event can receive 6 continuing education units.
