FIELD TOUR FOR RAGWEED
Glyphosate-resistant common ragweed may have been discovered in North Dakota. A field tour will be held August 5, 2008 near Mayville, North Dakota to demonstrate the possibility of glyphosate-resistant common ragweed and to gain a better understanding of glyphosate-resistance. Additional studies will show how to control the potential glyphosate-resistant common ragweed in sugarbeets, soybeans, and dry beans.
The tour of the research studies will begin at 9:30 a.m. and last approximately two hours. To get to the field, take exit 111 off Interstate 29. Go four miles west on North Dakota Highway 200. Turn north and go 2.5 miles on County Road 10 (158th Avenue). The research plot is in a wheat field on the east side of the road. Parking is available only along the side of the road.
In case of inclement weather, the tour will be canceled or postponed. If inclement weather does occur, contact Jeff Stachler at (701) 231-8131, Mohamed Khan at (701) 231-8596 or Kendall Nichols at (701) 636-5665.
