NDSU Crop Management Field School Set for June 14

Weed identification and cover crops are among the topics that will be covered.

North Dakota State University Extension’s annual crop management field school will be offered Thursday, June 14, starting at 9 a.m. at the Carrington Research Extension Center (CREC).

The school will provide updates on crop, pest and soil management recommendations using hands-on training in field research and demonstration plots.

The program is designed for crop advisers, but it also will be beneficial for farmers.

Field sessions include:

  • Weed identification - identify about 60 living weed exhibits, plus receive brief reviews on selected weed biology and control
  • Herbicide site-of-action - identify herbicide classes by examining crop and weed injury symptoms
  • Cover crops - review trials and results with small-grain and row crops
  • Measuring soil quality - review field tools and tests
  • Late-season wheat management - review strategies for disease control and plant nutrition
  • POST soybean herbicides - examine the balance between crop injury and weed control

Preregistration is required. 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 will receive 5 continuing education units in crop, pest, and soil and water management.
