The June 19 crop management field school will provide updates on crop, pest and soil management recommendations using hands-on training in field demonstration plots and research trials.

North Dakota State University Extension’s annual crop management field school will be Wednesday, June 19, 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 demonstration plots and research trials.

The program is designed for crop advisers, but 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
  • Late-season small grain disease management - review crop stages and disease identification, plus most effective use of fungicides to protect wheat seed yield and quality
  • Improving soil productivity - dig in the soil and have audience interaction to learn about soil health
  • Weed management - view selected research trials to discuss weed control issues

School instructors include NDSU crop specialists and researchers Greg Endres, Andrew Friskop, Joe Ikley, Lesley Lubenow, Mike Ostlie and Abbey Wick.

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

For more details and preregistration information, visit http://www.ag.ndsu.edu/CarringtonREC/ or contact the CREC at 701-652-2951. A completed preregistration form and $100 fee is required by June 14.
